Ready for the big one?

Are you earthquake ready?

California is earthquake country. We were recently issued an earthquake warning by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. A swarm of small quakes along the San Andreas fault line caused California to go on high alert this past weekend, as reported by earthquaketrack.com

Did you know that there is an increased risk of earthquake for those living in apartments and mobile homes?  Prepare yourself by building your own emergency preparedness kit. The Red Cross provides an earthquake ready checklist that will help you prepare for the big one!
