Earthquake Preparedness

by Theresa Harvey on April 22, 2014

The recent earthquakes have reminded all of us of the need to be prepared for emergencies. Besides storing food, water, and fuel, there are other things you can do to be prepared. Ready OC is a great place to go to begin your preparations. Another excellent tool available to Orange County residents is AlertOC. By registering withAlertOC, time-sensitive voice messages from the County or City in which you live or work may be sent to your home, cell or business phone to notify you of emergencies or critical situations and provide information regarding necessary actions, such as evacuations. Text messages may also be sent to cell phones, e-mail accounts and hearing impaired receiving devices. The California Office of Emergency Services also provides useful information to California’s residents about being prepared. I encourage all Californians to take advantage of this reminder that we live in earthquake country by getting prepared in advance of the next big earthquake, where we may not be as fortunate.
