Term Definition
Earthquake Proof

A building that is earthquake proof is expected to retain enough structural integrity to be safely re-used after the event. High value or essential facilities (fire and police stations, EOCs, or health facilities, which are all critical in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, and schools) may have to be built to a higher standard than required by the code to remain operational after an event.
