Earthquake Awareness Month
RELEASE DATE: Feb 09, 2022
February is Earthquake Awareness Month. Take this time to check in with family members and make sure your safety plan is up-to-date and all members of your household are aware of the steps to take during an earthquake. According to the Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC), earthquakes occur on a regular basis in the Central U.S. During an earthquake the danger typically occurs from falling objects, debris and structural collapse not necessarily the shaking or movement of the ground. Use these safety tips in your home to be readily prepared for an earthquake!
