20 years ago, a major earthquake shook southern California early in the morning.
Emergency resources were sent to the San Fernando Valley to deal with the fires,
major damage and injuries in that area. Some other areas of southern California
where there was damage and injuries had to wait for first responders.
And this was NOT the "Big One."
In that case there will be fewer resources available in areas that are not at the center of the problem,
and it will take longer – possibly days – to get to you and your neighbors.
So you and your family need to be prepared.
And you can help your neighbors – and your neighbors will be prepared to help you –
if your neighborhood is trained and organized.
