Safer Cities Advisory Program

Developing a Seismic Safety Ordinance?
Or a Back-to-Business Program?
We have something for you!

The Structural Engineers Association of Southern California (SEAOSC) is here to help. It is who we are. We are here to help develop the technical basis behind our building codes and standards. We are here to educate our members and the industry as a whole about structural engineering, how we can be better at what we do, and how to make a difference.

SEAOSC applauds the increased interest in the seismic safety of our communities; an interest that has developed fortunately now and before the potential loss of life and damage to property. We are proud that you, our Cities and other regulatory bodies in Southern California, are taking proactive steps to better understand the current risk to life and property of the existing built environment and then develop regulations and means by which that risk can be reasonably and significantly reduced.

We know that you have limited resources. We know that you want to make sure that what steps you are taking are technically sound. SEAOSC is proud to introduce our Safer Cities Advisory Program. This program is our way to give you a structure so you can engage the technical insights and creative minds of our membership to further our shared goals of reasonable and effective regulations and programs that make the difference that is sorely needed.

Our program is based on a pool of qualified SEAOSC members, able and willing to review regulations and other programs such as a back-to-business program developed by you. Our members are offering to volunteer their time to offer you recommendations on adjustments to your proposed regulations and programs. We want you to be successful with the implementation of your regulation and program, let us help you at no cost to you.

All you need to do now is ask for us to help. Send us an email at or write us. We look forward to working with you.

The Safer Cities Advisory Program is here to complement that great work you are already

The Safer Cities Advisory Program complements your engagement of the structural engineering community. We strongly encourage Cities and
other Southern California jurisdictions to engage structural engineers to assist you in determining your inventory of buildings that are highly vulnerable to seismic damage and develop proposed regulations for the retrofit of those structures. The Safer Cities Advisory Program is an option for you to have an independent, qualified review of your draft ordinances and programs. We are here solely to offer you insightful and expert advice from our highly qualified and vetted members.
