Seattle Office of Emergency Management is hosting an earthquake retrofit class at the Broadview Library, 12755 Greenwood Ave. N., from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3.
The workshop is free but online registration is required.
This introductory workshop will provide information on how to seismically secure a house to its foundation, especially for houses built before 1980. Experienced home retrofit instructors will teach attendees on what tools are needed to retrofit a house and will discuss building techniques, the city’s free plan set and the permit process. The workshop is designed for all homeowners, whether they’re doing the work themselves or hiring a qualified contractor.
