In the event of a major earthquake
the first step is to survive.
When the ground stops shaking, grab your go-bag and evacuate to higher ground.
Do not wait for a siren - we may only have 10 minutes before the wave hits.
If you can walk DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR - the roads will likely be damaged and/or traffic congestion will actually slow you down. Please leave road space for those elderly and disabled who truly need a ride.
There are several skills that will be crucial for you and your family's survival during a major disaster.
Physical strength to get to higher ground quickly and to carry supplies
Tolerance for discomfort
Know when and how to shut off utilities (and have the tools to do so!)
How to find, hunt and prepare food
How to sanitize water
Wilderness First Aid
Building a shelter
Building a fire (and putting out a fire!)
