Here is our latest video in our preparedness series. In this video you will learn how to properly respond to an earthquake for inside your home and if you happen to be outside. One tip we didn't share in the video, since my 11-yr. old son was the demonstrator, was what to do if you are driving. Obviously, he is too young to drive, so I thought that would be a little odd to film.

Thus, I share the tip in writing here with you now. If you are driving and you feel the earthquake (which you may not or you might think your vehicle is misbehaving), pull over, avoiding objects that could fall upon you (overpasses, trees, power poles, etc.) and stay in your car until the shaking subsides. Afterwards, proceed cautiously, as the road may have been impacted by the shaking. Drive slowly and use caution. One more related tip, it is a good practice to keep at least a quarter of a tank in your vehicle's fuel tank, in the event it is unsafe to remain in the area and you are being told to evacuate.

Now you can check out to the video and let me know what you think. Please feel free to share with your friends and family and encourage them to schedule an earthquake drill and practice their response procedures. I’m a paragraph. Drag me to add paragraph to your block, write your own text and edit me.
