Protect Your Property from an Earthquake

Main Content
Protecting your property from earthquakes can involve a variety of actions, from inspecting and maintaining your building to installing protective devices. Most of these actions, especially those that affect the structure of your building or its utility systems, should be carried out by qualified maintenance staff or professional contractors licensed to work in your state, county, or city. One example of earthquake protection is properly anchoring heavy equipment.
