It is a community-based campaign to spur action focusing on increased emergency preparedness through group discussions, exercises, drills and disaster planning. The app is full of helpful disaster preparedness information such as disaster safety tips, an interactive emergency kit list, a section to store emergency meeting locations, and even a map with shelters open in your area. On September 6, PG&E is sponsoring the California Day of Preparedness Event hosted by the State's Office of Emergency Services in Sacramento. National Preparedness Month in September serves as another good reminder that readiness for natural disasters is critically important every day.

Prepare and maintain an emergency preparedness kit with enough supplies on hand to be self-sufficient for at least three days, and preferably up to one week. You might also want to check emergency plans for places you and your family frequent, such as work and school. To ensure PG&E's preparedness for catastrophic events, the utility routinely conducts exercises focused on strengthening its emergency response and coordination between employees, first responders and the communities it serves.
The event is a free educational fair open to the public that will feature demonstrations and displays from several emergency response organizations including gas and electric safety demonstrations from PG&E.

A disaster supplies kit should contain basic items you and your family might need in an emergency situation, such as water, non-perishable foods, first aid kits, and critical medications.
Get them involved building a disaster preparedness kit, and include a few of their own items.
