Quake Tip of the Week

Playing in the Traffic? 

As a loving parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, (etc), would you consider letting that child you love so much go out and play in the street? Not even if it were a relatively “quiet” street, not in a million years. 

But you will let that same child play in your house, surrounded by bookcases, heavy furniture, and large wall hangings, right? If you live in the interior of our country, not problem. If, however, you live in California, you are putting that child, and yourself, at risk. 

Securing is easy and cheap, an incredible bargain for the safety and peace of mind that it brings. Please think about it. 

Here’s to making your home secure and your family safe.
