It’s well known that the “big one” is overdue along the west coast. Whether it happens in our lifetime or not is unknown- but smaller earthquakes occur all the time and it’s important to be prepared.

Making an emergency plan for you and your family is the first step to preparing. We’ve created a short list below on what to keep in your supply kit.
- First aid kit
- Bottled Water
- Non perishable foods
- Cleaning products
