Responding to the Christchurch quakes| Christchurch
February 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
(TSB Space, 1st Floor)
The Canterbury Branch and NZSEE will be giving presentations on the response of engineers to the Canterbury earthquakes: some stories and reflections on their journey.
This session will feature recollections on how they responded to the Canterbury earthquakes, highlighting the many ways that engineers assisted the community in the early stages of the responses. Every engineer in the Canterbury region was involved (along with a large number from outside the region, many of whom are now Cantabrians!), but everyone only knows a part of the overall story. The aim of this session is to look back at some of the particularly important functions and activities that engineers did, with a focus on the Darfield and Christchurch earthquake responses.
