Earthquake Preparedness

Earthquake Preparedness

The first sign may be a loud bang or roar, followed by feeling the ground shake and roll for several minutes. Aftershocks, or smaller earthquakes, can continue for many hours, even days. 

Earthquakes cannot be predicted.

However, there are some important resources available to help you be prepared. When earth shifts happen, let EPIC-FSC show you how and where to:

  • Store and rotate your emergency water supply
  • Store your emergency food
  • Have readily accessible emergency medical supplies

The San Andreas fault is the active tectonic boundary between the North American tectonic plate and the Pacific tectonic plate in western California. The two plates move in opposing directions, which causes earthquakes to occur along the fault. The entire San Andreas fault system is more than 800 miles long and lies around 10 miles deep within the Earth. The desolate landscape consists of pressure ridges formed as a result of hundreds of fault movements.
