Chile is a country of natural disasters. After the last earthquake and tsunami of 27 February 2010, Chile had an impact with mass casualties and material destruction across the central south.

This is demonstrated by the inefficient construction system, both in its conceptualization of the designand construction process control, lack of reaction protocols, regulators nefarious plans, placing cities in natural hazard areas, the social earthquake in Concepcion, the late arrival of military forces to organize the city and the lack of a stndard seismic construction of adobe, are some of the errors that arise after the earthquake.
