Earthquake Preparedness

We know that the San Andreas Fault produces large earthquakes and that many other Bay Area faults are also hazardous. However, even knowing this, it can be difficult to understand how to use this information to make us safer in our daily lives.

This handbook provides information about the threat posed by earthquakes in the San Francisco Bay region and explains how you can prepare for, survive and recover from these inevitable events. If you live or work in the region, you need to know why you should be concerned with earthquakes, what you can expect during and after a quake and what you need to do beforehand to be safe and reduce damage.
