Feeling overwhelmed by the idea of preparing for an earthquake? Maybe you have started but don’t know where to go next. We will discuss practical, low-cost and high-value actions. It’s not about buying stuff (that’s the easy part), it’s about thinking through what might work for your situation. Topics covered include staying safe during the shaking, what to expect after an earthquake, communicating with loved ones, valuable tech tools, the psychological impact of a disaster, the city’s disaster plans and so much more. Increase your resiliency by decreasing your fear of the unknown.

It was so complete! And the scenarios allowed me to imagine the possible challenges associated with an earthquake. I also appreciated getting perspective on what the city can and cannot do for its citizens.
