Once the earthquake is over, we will have to live with the risk of fire, the potential lack of utilities and basic services, and the certainty of aftershocks. Check with your city or county to see if there is a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) in your area. Find out if your home or business is at risk for earthquakes, tsunamis, and related hazards. Sleeping bags and flashlights may be quite handy in the days or weeks after a major earthquake.
Once you have recovered from the earthquake, go back to Step 1 and do the things you did not do before, or do them more thoroughly.

Learn from what happened during the earthquake so you will be safer and recover more quickly next time.
In addition to the shaking caused by earthquakes, other things can occur such as landslides, surface fault ruptures and liquefaction - all of which may cause injury or property damage.
Once you have met your and your family's immediate needs after an earthquake, continue to follow the plan you prepared in advance (see Step 2). Use the information you put together in your disaster plan and the supplies you organized in your disaster kits.
Before the next earthquake, get together with your family or housemates to plan now what each person will do before, during and after.

Earthquakes can occur everywhere in California which means all Californians live with an earthquake risk. In addition, some areas within California are vulnerable to tsunamis should an earthquake occur off the coast.
