You can’t predict when an earthquake will strike—or how severe it will be. But the correct preparations can make a significant difference to its impact.
Although popular images of earthquake damage centre on building failures, the vast majority of facilities sustain damage that can be repaired. Practical, inexpensive preventive action can reduce loss resulting from earthquake shaking, as well as the risk of post-earthquake fires due to flammable gas and ignitable liquid releases. Additionally, preplanning ensures timely post-earthquake response and rapid restoration of operations.
We’re committed to sharing a selection of our earthquake preparedness resources with the public, with many more available to our clients.
