How to Prepare for an Earthquake
An earthquake generally lasts only a few seconds, but California residents can agree that it can be the most terrifying few seconds of a person’s life. Buildings crack and loosen debris, furniture tumbles about, electrical wires can come loose and fires can result. The aftermath of an earthquake can last far, far longer than the brief time it takes to get through the event. However, if you understand how to prepare for an earthquake, you can mitigate some of the serious damage, reduce your liability and save lives.
