“Earthquake Safety Month”


Central Fire Protection District would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about earthquake safety. In the State of California, April has been declared as earthquake safety month by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. The key to surviving an earthquake is by preparing ahead of time and following some simple safety rules during a quake.


Before An Earthquake:

  1. Prepare an emergency kit of food, water and other supplies for every member of your family (including pets).
  2. Practice emergency drills with your family members or co-workers.
  3. Organize your neighborhood or workplace to be self sufficient after a quake.

During An Earthquake:

  1. Duck, cover and hold until the shaking stops.
  2. Be aware of possible falling objects indoors and out.
  3. Don’t panic

After An Earthquake:  

  1. Check your home for damage.
  2. Listen to news broadcasts for emergency information.
  3. Be prepared for aftershocks.

Take the time to prepare your family for the effects of an earthquake. Contact your local Fire Department or the Red Cross for more information.
