Abstract: KnowRISK (Know your city, Reduce seISmic risK through non-structural elements) is a project co-financed by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection under the Prevention and Preparedness call 2015, that focused on communicating preventative solutions to mitigate damage caused on Non-Structural Elements (NSE, the non loading part of buildings) during earthquakes. Although responsible for a large part of the damage occurring during moderate magnitude earthquakes, which are very frequent, prevention on such elements is often underestimated. This leaflet is Practical Guide intended to support communities. Four steps are coded in the Guides to assist people into a process of increasing safety, efforts and eventually cost: Move, referring to actions that just require rearranging furniture; Protect, referring to valuable fragile or expensive object; Secure, referring to large and heavy items that pose serious danger when loose; Retrofit, referring to those actions that are more intrusive and need an expert intervention. The Guide provides indication to implement, where possible, DoItYourself actions.
