Established ten years ago, the Great American ShakeOut has encouraged children, adults and the community to be aware of new earthquake safety procedures! Today, millions of California residents will practice how to Drop, Cover & Hold On! Living in California, we have a greater risk of earthquakes…but it is smart for everyone to know what to do in the event of an earthquake.
Earthquakes can happen instantly and without warning. Do you know what to do? For example, if you are indoors, you should DROP to the ground, take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or furniture, and HOLD ON until the shaking stops! Additional safety tips can be found at Ready.gov and ways to participate in this day can be found at The Great American ShakeOut website.
Are you prepared to jump into action in the event of an emergency? We discussed becoming CPR/First Aid certified in our post from last week, but are you prepared to evacuate your home in the event of a fire or earthquake? Do you have an emergency checklist of items to have handy so you can quickly leave your home? Check out tips and ideas promoting preparedness at Ready.gov. We hope it helps you create an emergency plan along with a supply kit packed with necessities such as personal items, important documents and enough food & water to tide you over for up to three days.
