DISASTER PREPAREDNESS

The first step to building an effective earthquake safety and preparedness plan is having an earthquake kit and earthquake supplies for your home and car. Earthquakes shake the earth with a violent and devastating force that can cause widespread casualties and destruction. Follow these steps to help protect those in your home and car when the 'Big One' that experts predict, unfortunately becomes reality:

Prepare an Earthquake
Emergency Plan for your Home


  • Choose a safe place in every room of your house for protection from an earthquake. It's dangerous to try and move too far during the aggressive shaking of an earthquake. Good earthquake protection places include a sturdy table or desk, a doorway (be careful of the door slamming your fingers!). If nothing else, try to get up against an inside wall where nothing can fall on you.
  • Practice DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON at least twice a year! Drop under a sturdy desk or table, hold on, and protect your eyes by pressing your face against your arm. Teach children - during an earthquake DROP, COVER and HOLD ON!

  • Choose an out-of-town family contact. The ability to use a telephone and contact family or rescue personnel is essential. If you do not have a cellular phone or if it's battery is dead when you need it most, we recommend you fill out the Out of State Contact Cards that are included in BestBePrepared's Earthquake Kits ahead of time. Simply fill out the card with contact information of a friend or family that lives outside your state. If local phone lines are out of service, you may still be able reach friends/family via a payphone or cell phone in order to inform them of your safety conditions (don't forget quarters!!!).
  • Eliminate hazards by: bolting bookcases, china cabinets and other tall furniture to wall studs; installing strong latches on cupboards, and strapping the water heater to wall studs.
  • Take an American Red Cross First Aid class or disaster training course.
  • Train to use a fire extinguisher. Your local fire department can help.
  • Inform your caretakers, babysitters, housekeeper and neighbors of your disaster plan.

Supplies Kit for your Home


Due to the likelihood of disastrous circumstances following a catastrophic earthquake, our Emergency Home Earthquake Kits come in easy-to-carry, 5-gallon containers and contain the following supplies to keep you prepared for the worst at home:

Emergency Food & Water Supplies - Just keeping bottled water and preserved food at home is not enough preparation for a major emergency. All of our Emergency Home Earthquake Kits come with a 3-day supply of U.S. Coast Guard-approved Emergency Food & Water per-person, both with a 5-year shelf-life (even in extreme temperatures).

BestBePrepared proudly supplies the ER Bar, a revolutionary emergency food bar.

We proudly supply Aqua Blox® water boxes with attached straws. Water remains the most important item to your survival in emergencies. Every Emergency Home Earthquake Kit comes with water purification tablets for use with the 5 & 55-gallon containers to purify extra water. The purchase of additional emergency water and food for your earthquake kit is recommended. Our earthquake kits include a minimum survival supply. The most practical and economical way to store enough emergency water for an entire family is our 55-gallon Water Storage Barrel and accessories.

Emergency Shelter Supplies - If forced to stay outdoors for several days, BestBePrepared's Emergency Earthquake Kits include essential shelter supplies. These supplies include Emergency Ponchos, Thermal Blankets and a Tube Tent which can protect you from harsh weather conditions. Additional recommended emergency home shelter supplies include a Canopy Shelter and Body Warmer Pads.

Emergency Lighting - If electricity is out and your family is stuck in the dark BestBePrepared's Emergency Home Earthquake Kits include essential emergency lighting devices for disaster preparedness. Our Deluxe Home Earthquake Kits include an AM/FM/Solar/Hand-Crank Radio with Lantern Light. They are recommended because they don't need batteries! Our Standard Home Earthquake Kits come with a Flashlight/Radio/Siren, emergency 12-hour lightsticks or battery-operated Emergency Flashlight. All home kits also include Emergency Candles and Waterproof Matches for extra long-lasting light. We recommend the inclusion of a Fluorescent Lantern for additional lighting capabilities. Don't forget batteries...save yourself money and trouble in replacing batteries for your earthquake kit by purchasing our Code Red Batteries with a 20-year shelf-life.

Emergency Radios - In the event of an earthquake while you're at home, you'll need to know how to find a safe location. All of our Emergency Home Earthquake Kits come with proper radio communication devices for listening to emergency broadcasts. Our Deluxe Home Earthquake Kits come equipped with an AM/FM/Solar/Hand-Crank Radio with Lantern Light and are recommended because they don't need batteries! Our Standard Home Earthquake Kits come with a Flashlight/Radio/Siren or standard AM/FM Radio.

Emergency First Aid Supplies - All of our Home Earthquake Kits include a comprehensive 52-piece First Aid Kit. In addition to the assortment of compresses, antiseptics, bandages, gauze pads and rolls, etc., we recommend the inclusion of a CPR Mask.

Emergency Search & Rescue Supplies - All of our Home Earthquake Kits come with appropriate search & rescue supplies for the home. One very important item which can save your home and neighborhood is an Emergency Gas Shut-Off Wrench, which is included in all our home earthquake kits. Each home earthquake kit also has a Swiss Army-style Knife which serves as five valuable tools. For setting up camp or shelter, each kit includes vinyl rope and duct tape. Each home kit also comes with work gloves, vinyl gloves and dust masks for protection from dangerous debris.

Emergency Sanitation Supplies - If plumbing is unavailable, the design of our Home Earthquake Kits enables you to use the 5-gallon container as a portable toilet. Each earthquake kit includes sanitation bags, toilet chemicals and tissue packs to be used with the container.
