Who Has the Game Plan In Your Family?

In April of 1906, the Great San Francisco Earthquake became one of the most destructive in California's history. There are seasons for almost every other natural disaster, but earthquakes strike at any time, which means that we have to be prepared at all times.

Plans Should Include

  • A meeting place right outside the home in case of a sudden emergency.
  • A location where everyone should meet if they can’t go home.
  • An out-of-area contact who can help connect separated family members.
All members of the household should work together on the emergency plan and each person should know how to reach other family members.
