Top five reasons to get prepared NOW

  1. You live in Southern California.
  2. You might save your own life or the life of a loved one (human or pet).
  3. In a large disaster, emergency services will be overwhelmed and won't be there to help you for days or perhaps weeks.
  4. The first 60 minutes after a disaster are critical for survival. Do you have a plan to follow — or will you panic?
  5. When disaster strikes, the time for preparation just ended. Do you have food, water, and first-aid supplies at home, in your car, and at the office? Don't forget supplies for your pets! Prepare now!
