ABOUT PREPARE NORCALThe San Francisco Bay Area is a region that is highly vulnerable to natural hazards like earthquakes, wildfires, and severe weather. Office of Emergency Management (OEM) also recommends keeping emergency supplies for up to seven days at your place of work. For your emergency supply needs, visit Major Survival and mention 'COPE' for a 10% discount.
Everyone has slightly different needs, and while a few of these (like emergency preparedness kits) are a good idea for everyone, some are more specialized depending on your needs. Based on what we've seen before, we'd also add lemon juice to the list, since it seems great for a few different things. With these supplies, you should be able to pull through any minor illness on your own so you don't have to call your mom for help. As the name implies, a traditional go bag is a single bag you can walk out of your house in case of an emergency. While a basic survival style go bag is great for the majority of people, those of us who rely on technology to get get things done need a different set of tools. ABC7 has gathered resources and tips to make it easier for you to access preparedness information all in one place. Here are eight kits you should keep in your home to prepare yourself for the most common emergency situations you might face. Still, variations on these kits should be useful for nearly everyone, so here they are, loosely ordered from least to most essential. For this reason, Simple Productivity recommends you keep an office survival kit in your desk for emergencies. The bag should have survival supplies to keep you fed and with water for at least 72 hours. A few variations on the bag exist, including the Bug-out bag for hardcore suvivilists, and the Go Bag aimed more at urban residents. Keep supplies wherever you can find space, and  the most important thing is to be actively thinking about and doing what you can to prepare for a disaster.


SAFE WATER SOURCES IN THE HOMEIf you do not have enough water stored, there are sources in your home that may provide safe, clean water for drinking purposes: the water drained from the water heater faucet (if the water heater has not been damaged), water dipped from the tank of the toilet (not the bowl - the water in the bowl can be used for pets) or melted ice cubes. The overall probability of a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake striking the Greater Bay Area in the next 30 years is 63 percent.

Make sure know how the notification systems in your area work.EARTHQUAKE INSURANCEMost residential insurance policies do not cover earthquake damage - a separate earthquake policy is required. Without earthquake insurance to help cover the costs of repairs and other expenses that come with catastrophic damage, you will pay out-of-pocket to fix your home, to replace your personal property, and to live and eat elsewhere. Five reasons to buy:If your home suffers catastrophic earthquake damage, the CEA can provide you with the strength to rebuild. With nearly $10 billion in claim-paying power, supported by the service expertise of its participating insurance companies, the CEA could cover all of its claims if the 1906 San Francisco, 1989 Loma Prieta, or 1994 Northridge earthquake reoccurred today.Excellent financial ratings. CEA rates are based on the best available science for assessing earthquake risk and do not include any amount for profit.Not tied to government budgets. California's budget issues have no impact on the CEA's ability to pay its claims, because the CEA is a privately financed entity and receives no money through the state budget.Without earthquake insurance, the cost of any damage is your cost.
If your CEA policy claim exceeds your deductible, you don't actually have to pay the deductible before claim-payment eligibility is triggered.Read more about CEA earthquake insurance policies and premiums and to see a list of insurance companies that sell CEA earthquake insurance. PRACTICE HOW TO DROP, COVER AND HOLD ON During an earthquake, know how to drop to the ground, take cover under sturdy furniture, and hold on to that furniture until after the shaking stops.

Find out about the threats and hazards in your area.California Earthquake AuthorityGet peace of mind. REMOVE FIRE HAZARDS AND INSTALL SMOKE ALARMSKeep items that catch on fire at least three feet away from anything that gets hot and stay in the kitchen while you are frying, grilling or broiling food. TRAVEL ROUTESPlan several travel route options in case one route is blocked by the fire or by emergency vehicles and equipment. It is unlikely that emergency response services will be able to immediately respond to everyone's needs after a major disaster, so it is important to be prepared to take care of yourself and your family. For chemical spills, airborne illnesses or biological hazards, be prepared to Shelter-in-Place if needed. Have a flashlight, battery-powered radio, extra batteries, and a well-stocked first aid kit. Alternatively, the American Red Cross and other companies sell pre-made supply kits of various sizes to make preparedness simple.
First check yourself for injuries then assist others based on your level of first aid training.
Do not use a gas stove for heating or operate generators indoors (including the garage.) Both could cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
Prepare a list of family members, friends, boarding facilities, veterinarians and pet-friendly hotels to shelter your pets in an emergency.
