4. LESSONS LEARNED FROM RECENT DISASTERS (40 min)
In the month of October, while the Bay Area was commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, the region experienced a swarm of moderate and small earthquakes that resulted in two refineries being shut down, a major fire at a fuel storage facility, two major Public Safety Power Outages, the massive Kincaid Fire and seven other fires that broke out simultaneously in the East Bay due to historic winds and dry conditions. The fires also resulted in poor air quality over much of the region. In early November, Treasure Island lost power due to an equipment failure. In light of these events, the Council’s Co-Chairs will facilitate a discussion to learn how the region’s lifelines responded, what lessons were learned, how we are preparing for future disasters, and how can this Council support member’s needs? Outcomes from this discussion will also inform the Lifelines Restoration Performance Project.

                 LIFELINES COUNCIL CASE STUDY QUESTIONS

 What are the agency design standards for their lifelines and services?
 To what criteria does the agency manage its risk – i.e. size of earthquake, performance standards,
operational level?
 To what extent do the existing systems meet the current design standards?
 What are the agencies’ response and recovery priorities?
 What assumptions do agencies have about the performance and restoration of other lifeline services?
 What do the agencies hope to gain from being a part of the Lifelines Council?
LAURIE JOHNSON, Ph.D, AICP BIO

LAURIE JOHNSON, Ph.D. AICP has over 20 years of professional experience in disaster-related
consulting, management and research. She has written extensively about the economics of catastrophes,
land use and risk, and disaster recovery and reconstruction. She has researched or consulted on recovery
following many disasters, including the 2004 and 2005 U.S. hurricanes, World Trade Center collapse,
1997 North Dakota floods, and 1994 Northridge, CA and 1995 Kobe, Japan earthquakes. With a strong
multidisciplinary and communications base, her experience is both local and international, and spans a
variety of disciplines, public and private sector clients, perils, and phases of disaster management.

In March 2006, she founded her consultancy, working to apply the principles and technologies of risk
management and urban planning to solve complex urban problems. Her clients have included: American
Planning Association, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (OES), City of New Orleans,
Fritz Institute, Greater New Orleans Foundation, Lexington Insurance, National Science Foundation, and
the U.S. Geological Survey. She is the risk management consultant on the La Conchita landslide hazard
mitigation study, funded by OES (April 2007 – present) and a disaster recovery advisor for the Southern
California Shakeout (M7.8 earthquake) scenario project, funded by the USGS (March 2008 – present). In
2006 – 2007, she was the lead disaster recovery planner and author of the unified citywide recovery and
rebuilding plan and comprehensive recovery framework for the City of New Orleans, Louisiana
following Hurricane Katrina. She has completed a book for the American Planning Association on the
planning for the rebuilding of New Orleans following Katrina.

During her 8-year tenure at Risk Management Solutions (RMS), she helped insurers integrate natural
catastrophe risk knowledge within their business. She led the business planning and product
management of the global suite of natural catastrophe peril models used by the re/insurance industry to
price and manage risk, and which are the scientific core of products accounting for >80% of RMS'
revenue. She also developed and led a 24/7 reporting service for the re/insurance industry on global
disasters, including loss estimation, real-time web-based communications with clients and the media,
field reconnaissance, and post-event analyses. Prior to RMS, she was an urban planner with EQE
International and Spangle Associates, Urban Planning and Research.

She recently completed her Doctor of Informatics at Kyoto University, Japan where she is also an
International Research Collaborator at the Research Center for Disaster Reduction Systems. Her
dissertation focuses on developing a management framework for local disaster recovery. She also holds a
Master of Urban Planning and Bachelor of Science-Geophysics degrees, both from Texas A&M
University. She is on the Board of Directors of the Public Entity Risk Institute and San Francisco Planning
and Urban Research Association. She is a member of the National Research Council’s Committee on
National Earthquake Resilience: Research, Implementation, and Outreach. She is also a member of the
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute, American Institute of Certified Planners, and American
Planning Association.
