Residents of Mexico who were rocked March 20 by an earthquake measuring 7.4 on the Richter scale and several strong aftershocks might be quick to remind others in quake-prone areas of the world such as southern California that making an emergency kit and a family disaster-response plan is worth the minimal time and effort involved.
Being prepared for quakes that geologists assure us will eventually come, most likely without warning, could make the difference between life and death. That’s why Pasadena Fire Department provides a wealth of information on the city’s website at www.cityofpasadena.net/disaster about how to plan ahead and take reasonable precautions now to help you survive during and after a serious earthquake or other disaster.
To arrange for a Pasadena Fire Department disaster preparedness presentation for your business, organization or group, contact Emergency Management Coordinator Lisa Derderian at (626) 744-7276.
