Earthquake Preparedness

As you probably know by now, a magnitude 4.4 earthquake occurred this morning at 4:04 a.m. about one (1) mile ENE of the City of Pico Rivera. This was a reminder that we should prepare ourselves for this or any other type of disaster. The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) stated that there was a lot of misinformation in the news this morning on the correct way to protect oneself when an earthquake occurs. This is why OEM has provided a few documents that should be helpful in creating your plans and organizing your emergency kits at home, work or at school and ensuring as a community that we are prepared.
