Re: Survey on the Benefits of EQ Mitigation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Patricia,

I am not sure if I fit into your category of expert.

I have only repaired 600 or 700 masonry and timber buildings after teh Newcastel

But I would like to fill in your survey if possible

Thank you for your help.
