My Earthquake Preparedness Guide – Simple Steps to get You, Your Family & Pets Prepared
The time to prepare is now – before the earthquake strikes. Once the “Big One” hits, it’s too late.
I wish I had a crystal ball to predict when the next earthquake will strike. I wish I could tell you what damage your home might sustain or how the earthquake will impact you, your family and your pets. But I can’t give you these answers – nobody can.
What I can tell you is this: if you are prepared, you will get through the disaster far better than those who are not.
Following the steps outlined in this earthquake preparedness guide will ensure that you have a Family Emergency Plan in place and that you have purchased and stored necessary supplies to survive the aftermath of a disaster. Most importantly, you will know what to do when the earth starts moving.
These are just a few of the valuable tips covered in the pages of this guidebook.
Best of all, if you are prepared for an earthquake, you will be prepared for any emergency or disaster that comes your way!
