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. Find out if your home or business is at risk for earthquakes, tsunamis, and related hazards. 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.
If your gas was turned off, you will need to arrange for the gas company to turn it back on.
If the electricity went off and then came back on, check your appliances and electronic equipment for damage.
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.

An earthquake is a sudden, rapid shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the earth’s surface. As part of ISU’s One Responsible Source offering, we provide clients with valuable trainings, like emergency preparedness.
Food and Water: The food and water in this kit will comfortably provide you with adequate nutrition for 72-hours without access to additional supplies. Not to show favoritism toward the force of nature that is the hurricane, The Weather Channel has decided that it will now begin naming winter storms as well. Pick one out-of-state and one local friend or relative for family members to call if separated by disaster (it is often easier to call out-of-state than within the affected area). Before the next earthquake, get together with your family or housemates to plan now what each person will do before, during and after. The TsunamiReady program sets guidelines for adequate tsunami readiness, including the ability to receive and send out tsunami warnings, designation of tsunami hazard zones and evacuation routes, and outreach programs that address both natural and official warnings. Earthquakes can occur everywhere in California which means all Californians live with an earthquake risk.

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.
California is at very high risk of earthquakes so it is important to adequately prepare your workplace for this disaster. In addition, some areas within California are vulnerable to tsunamis should an earthquake occur off the coast.
