Time spent fighting fires sure influenced how my structures were designed---but just from a combustion standpoint.  With US&AR I got to see lots of the flood damage from the hurricanes, but there really weren't lessons learned there I could apply.  Someday I'd like to see more construction failures from earthquakes and landslides to see what holds best.  Nature always bats last though
