Earthquake Home Retrofit Classes @ Ballard Library

What: Homeowners can take steps to “mitigate” or reduce the earthquake hazard to your home. Home retrofitting is the mitigation process of bolting a wood-frame home to its foundation and providing sheer/pony wall strength. The goal is to increase a home’s structural integrity, but does not mean it is “earthquake proof” (as there is no such thing).

Classes are free. Pre-register at or call 206-233-5076.

Where: Ballard Library (5614 22 NW)
