Be Resilient

Be Resilient At Home

Is your family prepared?

When a M7.0 earthquake hits the Bay Area, we need to ensure our families are safe and secure. Is your home earthquake-ready? Do you know where to go and what to do when the shaking starts? Have you secured your large appliances? Have you anchored top-heavy furniture to the wall? Does your family have an earthquake plan? Have you practiced it recently?

Be Resilient in Your Home

Here are a few “get prepared” suggestions from the National Safety Council:

  • Secure large appliances and install flexible gas and water connections
  • Anchor top-heavy furniture to the wall and place heavy objects on lower shelves
  • Never hang anything heavy above where you sleep

In addition, we recommend the following to ensure you, your family, and your home are ready when the next big earthquake hits:

  • Know your finances
  • Back up your data
  • Understand your insurance policy
  • Create a plan (and practice it with your family)
  • Ensure your home is structurally sound (consult with a professional)
