Earthquake Preparation - Is Your Home Earthquake Ready - Is Your Family Earthquake Safe
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Lance_Winslow]Lance Winslow

Sometimes I think it is funny how folks forget that the Earth is in constant motion, slow motion yes, but it is constantly moving. We call it such things as; Continental Drift, Plate Tectonics and those occasional Earthquakes, lave flows, extreme weather and constant ocean waves. The Earth is moving, it has always been moving and it will continue to move long after you and your family and your family's families walk upon its service and expire.

Although Earthquakes are not so common, they are known events, they are part of the Earth's movement. To deny the fact that there will be another Earthquake in your future is to deny yourself and your family the much needed preparation and protect that is paramount for survival and insurance that your property will remain unharmed.

There are so many things folks can do, common sense things that they needlessly look over; for instance having a tool to turn off their gas, water and water heater nearby perhaps attached by chain next to the valves, if a quick hand switch does not exist. Common sense should be exercised, and you must consider the breakables and where you place them in your home, if there are things you cannot afford to lose, consider special placement. Watch for things above your bed that might hit you or your children in the head.

Keep flammables in the garage on the ground, and in the kitchen consider things that will fall from shelves. You would be amazed at the simple things you can do in advance to protect yourself and family. Perhaps you might take a couple of minutes this week to search for tips on the Internet, from a reliable government approved website. Just 15 minutes of your time and then think about it for a bit, do the simple things first, just be aware. This post is not meant to scare you, it is meant to help you, preparation will give you strength and safety, think on it.
