Tips for Earthquake Preparedness Month!

Friday, April 13, 2012

As 2011 showed us, earthquakes can shake the ground just about anywhere in the world.

2012 is no different. Only four months into the year and there have already been a reported 4,218 earthquakes worldwide. Unlike other natural disasters, you can’t see an earthquake coming your way; the time to prepare is well before the actual event. So, it’s more than fitting that April is Earthquake Preparedness Month!
