Earthquake preparedness

A Listmania! list by Roney M. "The Ultimate Handyman" (Los Angeles, CA. USA)
The list author says: "Lets pay attention to the lessons learned in Japan last March 2011. Be prepared to evacuate taking with you all the extreme necessary items for surviving and essentials to take care of those around you. Have an emergency evacuation plan, and emergency meeting plan and a communication plan with family and friends, you will have to rely on each other when catastrophic natural disasters happen. Regardless if the problem is caused by the weather, geologic disturbances or other 100-year to million-year phenomena, surviving will depend on how prepared you are. Despite the elaborate social help systems in place where you leave, it is a known fact that fire department, police, rescue crews, FEMA and other will not get to you for weeks. Be prepared. Get more info at WWW.ultimate-handyman.com and search for earthquake. Get your priorities right!"
