SAC Background Documents available through ATC

The SAC Background Document series has been developed to disseminate information related to the mission of the Steel Project that has not been reviewed as part of the formal report series. The Background Documents are not intended to be used for design or for any specific building project and do not necessarily represent official findings or recommendations of FEMA, the SAC Joint Venture and its organizations, or any other project participants.

To order these documents, please contact: Applied Technology Council, 555 Twin Dolphin Drive, Suite 550, Redwood City, California 94065, (650) 595-1542; FAX (650) 593-2320.
