When the opportunity to get prepared has passed, you've got to survive your family and prevent further damage from aftershocks, fires (yes, fires are common after an earthquake), and other accidents.
In a major earthquake, the chance of getting hit by a falling object increases when you run, but you only have few seconds when you realize that an earthquake is happening, so where would you be safest in case of an earthquake.
When you are well prepared, you have peace of mind, and less stress, you can think of the power outage as your family camping trip.
Over the last 5 months, I have made a total revamp to the website, created free online courses, started filming videos in youtube, made free posters, got more consistent in my blog postings and more active on social sites. Apparently all of this effort has not gone unnoticed. Thanks to everyone reading and sharing our content and information in helping us receive this award.
When preparing for your disaster survival kit think about your priorities. Of course, food and water are necessary but First Aid supplies are the most important items in any emergency kit.
