When facing an earthquake, you your family and pets may be on your own for 72 hours or longer, you will not be able to run out and get the supplies you need, connecting with your family may be next to impossible if cell phones are not working, if our roads and bridges are damaged you may not even be able to get home to your family and pets. What about you, your family, your pets, how will you survive it?


This session will teach you how to be prepared for any emergency or disaster you may be faced with whether you are at home or work.  You will learn personal and family preparedness, what to do when the earth starts moving, how to connect with your family after an earthquake, how to perform a “home hazard hunt” and how to prepare your pets. If you are a business owner – you will want to ensure your staff is prepared both at home and work. The longer it takes for our businesses to get up and running after an earthquake the less likely our business will fully recover. If your staff is prepared this could help make it easier for them to return to work.


Living on the West Coast, we know it’s only a matter of time till the “Big One” strikes – what do you have to do to get your family and pets prepared?


The time to prepare is now – once the earthquake strikes it will be too late!
