Since no one seems to browse the C.E.R.T. section, I thought I'd start it here.

The odds that you will be near the epicenter is quite small as earthquakes tend to be localized. This does not mean you won't be effected and the events of the last couple days have me revisiting our emergency plan.

Here is the FEMA website that talks about earthquake preparedness. Cal Tech, USGS and others are good sources for info.

You are encouraged to participate in the annual California ShakeOut state-wide earthquake drill. The next is October 17. See the website for all sorts of information

I've browsed the C.E.R.T. section, there are useful things to be found. I also encourage everyone to participate in the CA shakeout. My wife and I, are actively involved every year. Thanks for the links NShore.

I think one of the things to consider is, how will we stay warm in the winter if the gas lines rupture, and our chimney collapses? Thinking of an indoor propane space heater here, and stock up on these 20# propane containers.

I am an active participant each year. I would encourage everyone to load up on gallons of water, canned foods, and other needs. It's bad enough that I don't have a cell phone. My folks' jobs are on the other side of the SAF. I'm up here and have no means of transportation myself. This is 5 days out of the week, so there is a higher likelihood of it happening during the work week. I wonder how long it will take them to reach me if they are blocked from the rockslides.

ArchJohn is right. It won't always be fair weather during a disaster. Water, and food, we've read the ratios for what we need. Don't forget our medications and sanitary supplies. Toilet paper and cheap booze will be great commodities. More importantly, let's not forget our pets need things like food, water, and medicine also. My water heater is a 90 gallon and a good source of h2o. I have a solar charger for small ham radio, batteries, and cell if it works. 99cent store solar yard lights will work better than candles. Guns and ammo.. touchy subject for some but believe me... one week without food and people start to look to sustain their loved ones. Invited neighbors are mostly good insurance unless they bring nothing to the table. A blazing bbq heating Vienna sausages will invite lots o company. Etc.. etc.. let's be prepared everyone. 1 last thing on medications. Just because they're expired, doesn't mean they're not useful. They may lose potency but better than not having. But like canned food, it's only a suggestion and the decision is ultimately yours.

Remember- all the stored water in the world won't help you if it freezes.... If you have a well make sure your generator is hooked up to it and you have fuel for the generator.

The rockslides are the least of your worries. The failed road and freeway system will be more of a problem. I'll also bet your folks don't carry extra gas cans with them to work. People inside any metropolitan area need to decide if they are hunkering down in place or making a run for it. Quakes? I suggest you become self-sufficient and just assume your parents are going to be out of the equation.

absolute necessity, is a small boxwood stove, with enough stovepipe to vent, and make a couple of rooms you can close off, and turn into an insulated living area, if you don't have one already. We spent this last entire winter in a temp container home, as we are building our log cabin, with a Vozelgang boxwood stove as our only heat source, that we also cooked on used about 1 cord of hardwood, kept us nice and toasty, and when the electeicity went out those couple of times, we didn't care, as it needs no electricity( like a pellet stove would need). It was a great feeling to not have to worry about freezing.

Boots... search YouTube for DIY solar oven. Quite easy to melt ice in the winter. Especially if it's snow. Many of these home made ovens are simple to make.. saw one made with a what looked like an old satellite dish. Maybe use aluminum foil? It'd be great for boiling water and the like I suppose.

@Razz ideally, too the leadership of this country, to whom could show some great strength by trying to console and unify this country. It's kinda working at the local and state levels, but that's not enough. And I'll leave it at that.

Funny to see the amount of young adults arrested for curfew violation. No worries though, mommy and daddy will bail them out, and give them a gold star for participating.
