FEMA Recovery Advisory: Earthquake Strengthening of Cripple Walls in Wood-Frame Dwellings (2015)

This Recovery Advisory addresses the issues involved in the earthquake strengthening of cripple walls in one- or two-family, wood-frame dwellings. This first part of the Recovery Advisory is intended to enable homeowners to determine whether their homes may have the vulnerable conditions addressed in this Advisory and whether the home is within the scope of the second part of this Advisory.

FEMA Plan Set: Earthquake Strengthening of Cripple Walls in Wood-Frame Dwellings (2015)

This second part of the Recovery Advisory contains specific measures for earthquake strengthening of a dwelling, for contractors and interested homeowners. It provides specific, pre-engineered details for the earthquake strengthening of dwellings so that the work can be done without the aid of a licensed design professional (in most cases), reducing the cost of the retrofit.
