Earthquake Preparedness

Tangshan, China, Earthquake July 28, 1976. Damage to the libr...With the recent Napa earthquake, it is a good time to refresh our knowledge of preparedness guidelines to stay safe during and after an earthquake.   The last page of the printable newsletter was included in the Mercury News of San Jose, CA recently.  The sources used are from a number of emergency organizations such as American Red Cross, FEMA, PG&E and others.

A couple of things that are not on their list but could be necessary in case of a bad earthquake are a crowbar and a quality axe.  Also, regarding a wrench or gas shutoff tool, it is wise to put one in a plastic bag and attach it to the gas meter.    If you smell gas after a quake, you don’t want to be wasting time looking for a wrench.    Stay Safe!
