Earthquakes have been big news this year. The huge temblor off Japan and the (relatively, for this Californian) mild earthquake on the East Coast of the United States has more people thinking earthquake safety and preparedness.

This means that if you’re planning a building construction project of any sort, you should include some sort of quake safety precautions in your building. Referenced below you will find a host of information to help you do just that.
