Why not use the occasion to encourage people in your network to consider their risk, review their insurance coverage, and talk to an agent about their options for earthquake insurance? Financial preparedness, including insurance, is essential to resilience and can strengthen and speed recovery after a damaging earthquake.

Building codes are critical to ensuring that all of a community’s buildings  are constructed to withstand natural hazards. In the earthquake-prone areas of the western United States, buildings should at least meet current life-safety seismic codes in order to keep people safe from structural collapse when a damaging earthquake strikes.

Be sure to join the International Code Council and other partners throughout earthquake country this month to get the word out and raise awareness about the importance of building code adoption — including regular updating and code enforcement!
