Are You Ready For an Earthquake?
Earthquakes are an unavoidable part of life here in Southern California. Here are some tips to keep your family safe in the event of the big one:

Create a Disaster Plan
Designate a safe place in every room under a sturdy table or desk or against an inside wall where nothing can fall on you.
Know the location of utility shutoffs including the gas, water, and electricity – and know how and when to shut them off.
Have emergency phone numbers readily accessible. Keep out-of-state contacts informed of your efforts.
Keep copies of essential documents such as identification, insurance policies, and financial records in a secure container.

Prepare a Disaster Supplies Kit
Personal disaster supplies kits may include:
First aid kit and essential generic and prescription medications.
Bottled water and snack foods.
Battery-powered radio, flashlight, whistle and extra batteries.
Emergency phone lists.
Copies of personal identification.

Identify Potential Hazards in Your Home
Secure large appliances and furniture to walls and properly brace water heaters and refrigerators using widely available bracing kits. Gas appliances should have flexible correctors to reduce the risk of fires. Hanging and other breakable objects should be secured with clear ‘earthquake’ gel or appliance putty.
