We all have a responsibility to be prepared for the next damaging earthquake. The Los Angeles region has a very seismically active past. The time is now to prepare for and respond to, and recover from the next earthquake.

Simple preparation steps to follow:

  1. Get a Kit
    • Have a kit at home, work and in your vehicle
    • Be prepared to have supplies for a minimum of three days; seven days is highly recommended
    • The kits should include food, water, medication, a first aid kit, personal comfort items, a battery-operated radio, a flashlight, extra cash in small denominations, and pet preparedness supplies if you have animals
  2. Make a Plan
    • Every individual, family, business, school and organization should have a plan that consists of important contact information, out-of-state contacts, and meeting place locations
  3. Be Informed
