Earthquake Preparedness

Is your family prepared for an earthquake?

This video on earthquake preparedness comes from the "Totally Unprepared" campaign, which is a collaborative effort between Cal OES, the California Seismic Safety Commission (CSSC) and the California Earthquake Authority (CEA).

Make sure your home is ready by securing moveable items and by having an earthquake kit prepared. Totally Unprepared shares what should be included in an earthquake kit here, and the American Red Cross encourages families to create a Family Disaster Plan. Learn about the natural hazards that exist in your neighborhood on the Cal EMA "MyHazards" website.
