In addition to being the home of the blues and birthplace of rock n’ roll (and some of the world’s best barbecue), Memphis has numerous earthquake mitigation sites of interest. These include historical sites such as the National Civil Rights Museum, I-40 bridge over the Mississippi River, AutoZone World Headquarters, Bass Pro Shops at the Memphis Pyramid, the FedEx Forum, and Memphis, Light, Gas, & Water facilities. An organized field trip will be held for meeting participants to learn about how these facilities and infrastructure have been built or retrofit to withstand earthquake shaking.
