Person Earthquake Emergency Kit

This is a follow up to the email sent a few weeks ago with starter information for you to set up your home, and of course check the local government guidance.

Below is a basic starting point for earthquake emergency preparedness that I have in my backpack, you may add more or adapt as necessary or you see fit.

Storage of bag:

I have kept my bag in a coat closet close to the exit door ( our garage gets hot in summer and cold in winter; the heat may not be ideal for the liquids)
