are involved with the earthquake risk reduction process, in fulfillment of its role.

The NEHRP agencies propose to keep abreast of advances in science and technology, and adjust short- and long-term developmental efforts accordingly. Although NEHRP will remain focused on the elements of the Strategic Plan, the agencies will adapt to contingencies and opportunities that may arise. If a major earthquake occurs in the United States during the plan period, NEHRP will initiate efforts to study the effects and impacts of that event, including successes, failures, and unforeseen problems that arose in mitigation, response, and recovery practices and policies, and adjust the plan as needed.
