How to prepare for an Earthquake in BC, Canada

Brought to you by

Well, Japan was a major reminder that some of us are just not prepared for a major earth quake. The Japanese people showed us that the years of training and preparing for such things, really paid off!

Now, we are unable to fix our homes to make them more earthquake proof, and from studies showing that most of the deaths and injury comes from what happens after a major earthquke. I am talking about loss of power, loss of heating, loss of water, you get the picture....

So, we took some time, and researched the top 5 MUST do's, to be well prepared for an earthquake.

#1: The most important: You need electricity!

When a earth quake happens, you will be off the grid, no electricity. So, we advise you Make your OWN Solar Panels. There are a few kits out there, and we found the best, and easiest one. Full video tutorials and instructions. Best off all, VERY cheap, and anyone can make them.

#3: Food - Be smart about what food you keep.

Nothing has changed in this one. Its simple... Canned food will always be number 1. Even protein bars last for years. Make sure whatever food you keep, it is wrapped in something. Either a foil bag, or can, etc.

#4: Flashlight! No brainer.

#5: Educate, educate, educate!

If we learn anything from the Japan earthquake, it's how being well educated and prepared for earthquakes someone is, the better off they will be. Learn about them, read reports on what to do when one hits. Educate your family on whatever you learn. When a earthquake hits, you should know what to do. It could save your life!

The following are important tips to remember and ways to educate your family:

# Learn how to shut off gas, water and electricity in your home in case power lines are damaged.
# Check the stability of chimneys, roofs and wall foundations. If you're living in a home that was built before 1935, make sure the house is bolted to the foundation. If your home is on a raised foundation, make sure the cripple, or short stud walls between the floor and foundation, are replaced with shear, or vertical walls that are used to stiffen the structural frame. If you have questions, contact a licensed contractor.
# Secure heavy furnishings.
# Secure your water heater and other appliances that could move and disrupt utility lines.

When an earthquake occurs, your first warning may be a swaying sensation if you're in a building, a sudden noise or roar. Next, vibration, quickly followed by rolling up, down, sideways, rotating. It will be scary! It may last a few seconds or go on for a few minutes. The earth won't open up and swallow you. But you could be hurt by breaking glass, falling objects, and heavy things bouncing around. Be prepared for aftershocks.
