Staying Safe Where the Earth Shakes
California is a beautiful state. But no matter where you live in our state, whether it is the Redwood forests, high Cascades, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco Bay Area, Central Valley, Mojave Desert, near the beaches of southern California, a big city or smaller town, you live in earthquake country. Understanding the risks and preparing to survive and recover can help keep you and your family safe.
Staying Safe Where the Earth Shakes is a booklet that includes the "The Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety" - basic guidelines for what to do before, during, and after a damaging earthquake. You can also visit EarthquakeCountry.org/SevenSteps for more tips on how to apply these steps to your family’s unique needs.
