Earthquake, as the most horrifying and tragic natural disaster, knows no limitations. Since Iran is located on one of the most active seismic belts in the world (the Alps-Himalaya orogenic belt), it is considered as one of the most earthquake - prone countries in the world. Kerman Province, due to its position on this belt, is seriously vulnerable to dangers by this natural disaster. Earthquakes occurred in this province have always entailed vast human losses and economic damages. In this paper, it has been tried to study the recorded data and the geomorphological map of the area, and to determine sensitive and vulnerable points over the province and provide the economic and social planners and managers and officials of emergency aid organizations with suggestions for reduction of the effects of natural disasters.
