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

Major earthquakes typically happen once a year somewhere on our planet. Sometimes little damage occurs and sometimes many lives are lost. Knowing what to do before, during, and after an earthquake can save your life and help your family members and pets survive. Use this guide and the checklists inside to get ready:

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.
