Having a preparedness plan is a great idea, especially if you live in an earthquake prone region. Even if you don't think you live in an earthquake zone, remember, earthquakes can strike at any time as well as anywhere, so having a plan in place might "change" the difference between surviving . . . or dying! Your survival/preparedness, plan should include; a place for everyone to meet, water, non perishable foods, a first aid kit, flashlights, matches/lighters, blankets, change of clothes, pet food (for your furry friends), can opener (not electric), and anything else you feel would benefit you and your family. Remember . . . "DON'T BE SCARED . . . BE PREPARED!"
