Building inspectors and civil engineers from across Orange County are forming a regional strike team that will spring into action after a major earthquake to determine whether hospitals, office towers, malls and other buildings are structurally safe and inhabitable. The effort was inspired by the Northridge earthquake in 1994, when inspections of damaged buildings were slowed by a lack of coordination and planning.
