[ARCHIVED] Be Prepared!


The June 10 earthquake centered near Borrego Springs was a literal wake up call for SoCal residents to take stock of their disaster preparedness plans in case the next one is “the big one.”

City of Poway residents, businesses, and visitors are encouraged to prepare for a major earthquake resulting in the significant disruption of routine activities. When preparing for an earthquake, plan on having enough supplies to get you and your family through at least the first 72 hours.

After a major earthquake, there's a good chance that traditional emergency response teams will be too busy to take care of you and your family. You need to:
* Prepare yourself
* Prepare your family
* Prepare your home
* Prepare your neighborhood
