Earthquake Retrofitting Works! 

The last thing you want to worry about during an earthquake is if your house will stand up.

The importance of fortifying homes that can withstand shaking forces and seismic activity cannot be overstated. These forces are what will eventually cause those who get caught in between collapsing house during an earthquake to be injured or worse, and not the actual tremors themselves. FEMA reports this same sentiment when they say: although you can't control the seismic hazard in the community where you live or work, you can influence the most important factor in saving lives and reducing losses from an earthquake: the adoption and enforcement of up-to-date building codes.

Retrofitting your home with earthquake resistant measures can help to decrease the likelihood of destruction in an earthquake. If you do find yourself suffering through damages, it will most likely be at a much lower cost than if you had been unprepared. Earthquake retrofitting is also more affordable than building new construction or generally getting a new house! so while it may seem like a hefty investment now, it'll save you from losing everything when disaster strikes!
