FIRE has been the focus of most people in Sonoma County for a couple of years now, and EARTHQUAKES have been pushed to the back of our minds – until the first week of July, when a series of quakes hit in Southern California. Now we’re all on edge, wondering how close we are to the next “Big One” here.

So Preparation is the key word. WATER: However lazy we are, or however unable to get to a store, we need to have a good stock of potable (drinkable) water stored in a safe place. Remember, in the case of earthquakes, you need to stay put. Don’t clog the highways – which might be unsafe anyway – to make room for emergency vehicles. If you smell gas – THEN you can leave, but be sure to report it immediately. So go buy – or have delivered – several gallons of water.

We read and hear about “magnitudes”, which are fine to read before and after a quake, but at the time you’re in one, you don’t really care whether it’s a 3.0 or a 7.1. All you need to do is to get into a safe place, and follow all the rules about what to do in case of a quake.

So go get water now. It’s the one thing you cannot live without.
