Household Emergency Preparedness Tips
Earthquake Warning California
Earthquake Warning California is the country’s first publicly available, statewide warning system that could give California residents crucial seconds to take cover before an earthquake. Managed by the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), Earthquake Warning California uses ground motion sensors from across the state to detect earthquakes before humans can feel them and can notify Californians to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” in advance of an earthquake.
To receive earthquake warnings, individuals and family members can download the MyShake App and ensure phone settings are adjusted to receive emergency alerts.
