Get Prepared:

What we do now, before the earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like after.

    • Do a "hazard hunt" for items that might fall in your home, school or working environment during earthquakes and secure them. Do an inspection for non-structural items (bookshelves, equipment, etc.) that might fall and cause possible injuries. Move or secure these items to provide a safer environment.
      • Plan for your family's specific needs (seniors, disabled, children, pets).
      • Teach all household members how to use a fire extinguisher.
    • If you are a business or organization, develop, review and/or exercise your continuity plan to identify and practice organizational responsibilities.
    • Organize or refresh your emergency supply kits. Be prepared for the possibility that you, your family or those in your school or work place may need to remain in place for 2-3 days.
      • Store at least 1 gallon (4 liters) of water per person, per day
      • What other supplies might you need if transportation routes were blocked and you needed to remain in the same place for an extended length of time?
      • Organize and refresh your emergency equipment – fire extinguishers, first aid, flashlights, food, crank radios, satellite phones, generators, fuel; make sure everyone in your family or work place know the location and how to utilize supplies.
      • What else would you need to be on your own for up to 2 weeks?
      • What would you need if you are in your car or office when the earthquake strikes?
    • Consider whether earthquake insurance is right for you.
    • Create a game where everyone responds to a signal by practicing Drop Cover and Hold On. Talk to children about what to expect during and after an earthquake.
  • Contact your local Emergency Program to learn more about how to take care of yourself and your family when you are “on your own” after a disaster.

Think about preparedness; at home, at work, at school, even in your car.
What should you do? Check your Emergency Plan and Evacuation Routes everywhere you normally spend time. Make sure you have an out of State contact for you, your friends and your family (long distance phone service is usually restored before local - and mobile services and internet will likely not work in a major disaster.)
Of course, you should Check your Emergency Supplies, too:

  • Count your stock... is it enough?
  • Check your expiration dates (food, water, batteries)
  • Keep cash on hand
  • Don't let your gas tank get below half-full
  • Think-Plan-Prepare-Survive!
