Who can I talk to or contact for more information on landslides?
The U.S. Geological Survey Landslide Information Center has a toll-free number at 1-800-654-4966, and can be reached by email at NLIC@usgs.gov. Most states have a state geological survey and many of them feature information about landslides. Visit the following Web site to find state geological surveys.
Contact your local emergency management office (state, city and/or county) to find out what kind of emergency preparedness is in place and whether landslide maps are available. Information about contacting local offices can be found in the government pages of the telephone book, by calling directory assistance, or online through search engines.
Private geotechnical consulting companies have listings in the yellow pages and can be reached through professional societies. Two of the professional societies are the Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists and the American Society of Civil Engineers. These organizations can help you contact geotechnical professionals in your area.
