PIMA President Justin Koscher has written an article that discusses the benefits of building codes in disaster preparedness and relief. Justin writes:

"In the days following the powerful assault  of  Hurricane  Michael  on  the  Florida  Panhandle,  images  of  wide-spread  devastation  headlined  television  news  coverage  and  print  media.  Not  as  prone  to  hurricane  activity  as  the rest of Florida, the area hit by the almost  Category  5  storm  had  many  older  homes  built  prior  to  the  enactment of stricter building codes put into place after Hurricane Andrew in 1992."
