Preparing for an Earthquake
With the recent earthquakes, rains and possible cuts in police & fire services in San Rafael, I think its more important than ever to prepare ourselves as community. It is something we should focus on for this year.
To help, fellow BH resident and Real Estate agent Norine Castro & I have created the attached brochure “Earthquake Survival Guide” (below) which also has some general useful tips to survive a disaster - being prepared for the first 72 hours are key. Starting next week we will be distributing these in a plastic bag with a couple of candles & some band aids to help get people started.
