Are you ready Bird Rock?
Yesterday a 7.2 earthquake occurred south of San Diego in Baja Mexico. It was felt throughout Southern California, especially here in San Diego. For full report click here. My husband and I happened to be grocery shopping at Vons Pavillion during the quake. However, the kids were home and this made us realize we had not created our disaster plan in case of such an emergency. I'm including here some information & tips I found. Ready San Diego has tips and resources to help prepare for an emergency including earthquakes. In addition, SDG&E has helpful tips to prepare you for emergencies. In addition a real time Outage Map. During the month of April, which is Earthquake Preparedness Month, the Red Cross would like to remind the community to have a family disaster plan to ensure that all family members know what to do, where to go and who to call in case of a disaster. The Red Cross recommends that everyone have an emergency disaster kit at home, in the car and at work or school.. More tips from the Red Cross.
