Auto and Workplace

Earthquakes can happen at any time of the day. They can happen when you are at work, driving to a store, or during a tailgate party.  It is very important to keep a emergency preparedness kit in your car because of the fact that you are usually located within close proximity of your vehicle at all times and can gain immediate access to emergency supplies in a disaster situation.  If you drive to work, this kit can also double as your office emergency kit.
