"Is My Building Earthquake-Safe? Obstacles to a Practical Earthquake Rating System,” will be presented by David Bonowitz, S.E., chair of the National Council of Structural Engineers Associations (NCSEA) Existing Buildings Committee. In addition to addressing the questions, "Shouldn't everyone in seismically active areas be able to know how their house, apartment, workplace or school will perform in an earthquake – or for that matter, a hurricane, tornado or flood?” and "Why can't buildings be graded for earthquake safety, like restaurants are for food safety?” Bonowitz will present a new rating system developed by the Structural Engineers Association of Northern California.
