Dangers of Disaster
Huge disasters, such as major earthquakes and wildland fires, seem a remote possibility, but the experts say we live in one of the highest risk places in the state. If you think a disaster can't happen here, you are gambling with your life. We must each recognize and expect that in the event of a major disaster:
We may not be able to get home for several days
Children or others needing help may be home alone
Our homes may be seriously damaged or destroyed
Someone in our families may experience serious injury or death
Living In a Disaster Area
Complacency and reliance on government have no place in preparing for these anticipated disasters. We must become actively involved, taking personal responsibility for our own survival. That means planning and preparing for an event, knowing how to survive an actual event, and knowing how to live in a disaster area.
