Tragic Earthquake in Haiti a Shocking Reminder to Store Water and Be Prepared

The devastating and tragic 7.0 earthquake in Haiti on January 12th is a shocking reminder for all of us to be prepared for a major earthquake to strike the San Francisco Bay Area at any time.

Store at least one gallon of water per person per day to last at least three days after a major disaster. Store additional water for houseguests and pets. Store water away from sunlight and heat and replace every six months. Learn more about getting prepared by visiting http://www.72hours.org/.
