>> yaerth preparedness is a way of life in san francisco san francisco we hope the new law requiring the upgrades is soft story building will help keep residents safe and sound. so bill tell me about the soft story building program what is it >> it's a program the mayor signed into law a year and a half ago the whole idea was to help homeowners strengthen buildings so they wouldn't collapse.
11:49 am
>> does the soft story program apply to all buildings. >> it only applies to buildings built in a timeframe of 1978 and earlier it's aimed at wood framed building 3 or more stories and 5 are more units but the openings at the garage level and the street level are not supported in many buildings without the support in a major earthquake the professionals sent them to flatten and many are under rent control so everybody's advantage to do the work and make sure they're protecting their investments and tenants. >> nos have gone out to have thousand owners but fewer one one third have respondent and thousand might miss an important deadline in december let's talk
11:50 am
worse case scenario. >> so first soft story walls the building will collapse and be a total loss. >> can you talk about the sfrelg in the retrofit. >> you want to think of this building like a rubber abandon in the upper 3 floors are a rid i do box and the earthquake the garage tends to really over the first floor is a very tough but flexible e flexible rubber abandon you would not drive the forces to the upper force so it goes into the plywood or steel frame. >> so here we are inside a soft story building can we talk about the kinds of repairs property
11:51 am
owners might expect and it's a simple process we try to keep it that way so what's involved whether you install plywood to make a wall and cover it with the gossiping so many stellar it adds underneath e flexibility so during the earthquake you'll get movement but not collapse it gets strengthened more when we go to the doorway to the steel frame to support the upper floor. >> so potentially the wood and steel that sound like a straightforward process takes our odds of collapse from one in 4 to one in thirty. >> that's exactly right we're hoping people will move quickly and make this happen. >> great let's take a look at. >> so let's talk extremely frame talk about that.
11:52 am
>> we have a extremely frame there are two of those and go up to the lower floor and a beam that goes 0 across that forms this it's a stiffer and stronger so during the quarter the upper floor won't clarion and according the engineers and contractors it could be done in two weeks time easy. >> if you're a property owner with questions about the soft story retrofit program signs up to this on august 11th from 3 to 5 at the main public library and the dbi staff will be there the deadline for applications t is september 15th. for more information food in sa just about expensive eat but

11:55 am
