Is your family prepared for an earthquake or any other disaster?  If not, then you need to create a Family Disaster Plan and Personal Survival Guide.  The Family Disaster Plan is a template and guide that will help you and your family prepare for and survive a disaster. It covers topics such as:

  • Preparation
  • Training
  • Before a disaster
  • During an earthquake
  • If you evacuate
  • After a disaster
  • Home emergency supplies
  • Important telephone numbers
  • Practice your plan as a family
The Family Disaster Plan is also available in Spanish and Tagalog.
