Because of the prevalence of earthquake faults in the region, the City of Beverly Hills is always implementing proactive mitigation measures. For example, since 2014, all new commercial and multi-family construction must include a seismic study to determine if faults lie underneath the property.

Community members need to always be prepared for an earthquake or other emergency by obtaining supplies, creating an emergency plan and staying informed. For information on how to prepare for an emergency, go to http://www.beverlyhills.org/emergencypreparedness.
