Federal, state and municipal governments are acting to increase awareness in communities through civil protection; to support public infrastructure in case of disaster with the Natural Disaster Fund, Natural Preventive Disaster Fund and a seismic alarm system; and to provide updated and regional building codes. Mexico is located in a high seismic risk zone, and today's industrial and commercial development has elevated the existing threat.
