Quake Tip of the Week

My Quake Resolutions... 


My new year’s suggestion is to set a reasonable time table to do these things to make your family and your home safer: 

• If your home has a “crawl space,” have your retrofit checked 

• Make sure you have emergency kits at home, in the cars, at the office 

• Get an automatic gas shut-off valve installed at your gas meter 

• Secure all your tall/heavy furniture, your wall hangings, and your appliances 

If you have any questions about what to do, call or email me – my passion is earthquake preparedness and I’m happy to talk with you.  

Make your home secure and your family safe.
