What are the best defenses against an earthquake?

The best defenses are shear core, base isolators, a deep foundation, shutters and cross bracing cross bracing is a system utilized to reinforce building structures in which diagonal supports intersect. Cross bracing can increase a building's capability to withstand seismic forces from an earthquake. Shutters will block out any object that will come in and will stop glass from shattering which could cause injuries or death base isolators will help a building withstand an earthquake as they sway the building the way an earthquake is going and bounces the building up and down. A deep foundation will make it more harder for a severe earthquake to take the building down and in a smaller magnitude earthquake it will hardly affect the building.
