We Can't Predict, But We Can Prepare!

Kindly share this disaster preparedness message with your friends and family, before... the ground... starts... shaking!

Thank you for the links. Thankfully the earthquake wasn't a large one at all, but it certainly reminded everyone that they live in Earthquake Country. The Big One could always be around the corner.
