A four-week program to help you and your family survive.

Find your safe spots at home, at work, at school, and outdoors.

Develop your emergency communication plan.

Shake-proof your home.

Assemble emergency supplies

By following the steps in the four-week readiness program described here, you can avoid injury and ensure you have the food, water, and other essentials you need to be prepared rather than scared.

Editorial Review

Are You Ready? is one of those books you hope you'll never need but if you do, you'll be glad you read it. Without this book, in fact, if an earthquake happens, you could be on shaky ground. —appealdemocrat.com
