While most of the booths at this show will be displaying products for people interested in building new homes or renovating existing ones, CSAV provides a different venue by educating the public on how to strengthen a home against natural hazards.
"The hazards homeowners can most effectively build against are earthquakes and hurricanes, so displays showing how to retrofit with shear walls and strong-ties will be featured," said Darcy Bevens, educational specialist with CSAV. "But to make the booth appeal to kids as well as adults, a portable seismograph and hurricane simulator will be set up so that kids can make their own earthquake/hurricane and see the effects on models of typical Hawai`i-style houses."
