Iran is one of the most seismic countries in the world, a lot of earthquakes occur in Iran every year. Some actions and researches have been done about Earthquake Disaster Risk Management field since 1990 after large earthquake of Manjil-Rudbar in Iran. One of the main subjects of Earthquake Disaster Risk Management is Community base Disaster risk Management (CBDRM). This paper presents the idea of Earthquake Disaster Management Multipurpose Complex (EDMMC) with self-help neighborhood approach that has been proposed for making CBDRM feasible in each neighborhood of a large city like Tehran, The case study is Youssef Abad-region6-Tehran. Furthermore, in structural Design, the seismic behavior of Earthquake Disaster Management Multipurpose Complex (EDMMC) was evaluated using dynamic nonlinear analysis. In total, three different structures (the building of a training complex with a typical foundation (M1 ), the steel building of the training complex with a LRB base-isolator (M2 ), and the steel building of the training complex with rocking structural systems (M3 )) were studied applying three earthquakes of Northridge, Kobe, and Chi-Chi. Several seismic parameters were also evaluated including time history of displacement (displacementtime), time history of base shear (force-time), and the hysteresis diagram (force-displacement). The results indicate the appropriate function of the selected M2 and M3 model in controlling and decreasing the seismic responses of the structure.
