Study Reveals Californians Must Increase Earthquake Preparedness; Less Than 20 Percent Have Prepared Their Homes; Only 40 Percent Have Sufficient Water
Date:3/5/2010

State and Local Agencies are Better Prepared Today, but Weakest Link is Citizen Preparedness

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) March 5, 2010 -- A majority of Californians have taken initial steps toward earthquake preparedness but more than 60 percent of Californians have not done enough to make their homes safer and guard their personal finances in preparation for an inevitable, large-scale earthquake, according to a recent California Earthquake Preparedness Survey.

Although state and local public safety and emergency management agencies are better prepared than ever before, California residents have focused on easy preparedness activities such as collecting supplies and making back-up copies of important documents but they have not done more difficult and expensive activities such as securing the contents of their home or purchasing earthquake insurance, according to the survey.

Key findings of the survey were:

 
  • Fewer than 20 percent of households have structurally reinforced their homes or had their homes inspected for earthquake resistance.
  • Only 40 percent keep the recommended minimum of three gallons of water stored per person.
  • Fewer than 20 percent of California households have purchased earthquake insurance.
  • More than 80 percent of households have first aid kits, flashlights and batteries in their house but only 40 percent of Californians have made family disaster plans.

The California Earthquake Preparedness Survey was conducted by the UCLA School of Public Health for the State of California on behalf of Cal
