Students and researchers from the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) are working with the State of Mexico government in order to help assess 93 historical sites in the state after the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that struck Mexico on Sept. 19.

Structural engineers, architects specializing in cultural heritage sites and geologist from UAEM are all part of 12 brigades that include government personnel.

During a meeting between UAEM Rector Alfredo Barrera Baca and State of Mexico Culture Secretary Marcela González Salas, it was said that the purpose of these brigades is to evaluate the damage and to put forward a proposal for both short- and long-term solutions.

The information gathered by these brigades will be used to put together a file that will allow the government to allocate the necessary resources to fix the sites, locate the ones that might be in danger of collapsing and protect the works of arts that they house.
