Your Family Earthquake Preparedness Plan includes recording information to facilitate communication among family members, and to be aware that during the first 24 hours after an earthquake, the phone should only be used for emergencies. Text messaging may be an alternative option before phone calls are available.

According to the USGS, Southern California has about 10,000 earthquakes per year, most are mild and we don’t even feel them. Living along the San Andreas fault, we have the possibility of experiencing a destructive quake.

Asbestos Exposure

Earthquakes and fires can release asbestos fibers which are extremely dangerous. Learn more about asbestos in natural disasters.

The Great California Shake Out

International ShakeOut Day is always the third Thursday of October.

As always, you can hold your ShakeOut drill when and where you want. You can choose another date or several dates, and include people in multiple locations (home, work, or school), perhaps through video conferencing. It’s actually a good idea to practice earthquake safety in different situations each year!
