Earthquake safety blog cautions people that surviving a disaster is the just the beginning
VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – November 29, 2017) – Thinking about earthquake and natural disaster safety isn't a priority for most people. After all, it's not a regular occurrence, and is not pleasant to ponder. But that doesn't mean catastrophic events don't deserve some headspace. As many people are aware, a long anticipated major earthquake is expected in the region. According to the professionals at BC Quake, being prepared for the aftermath is almost as important as surviving the event itself. For more, go to: https://www.bcquake.ca/blog/what-to-expect-after-an-earthquake/
There are three considerations that have to be looked at post disaster. These include:
- emergency response time
- possible building damage and
- prolonged exposure to the elements
For example, the blog points out, “During an earthquake, the danger is from falling objects such as bookcases, artwork, ceiling fans, as well as imploding windows. But when the earthquake is over, staying warm and out of the elements is crucial. Don't underestimate the effect of the earthquake trauma and living outside in rain or cold on the human psyche and health. Dehydration is a real concern as it can result in dizziness, confusion, and a lack of concentration…”
It may not always be possible to use electricity, contact family/friends, or drive after an earthquake. While having a preparation plan in place is important, a well-equipped earthquake kit can provide peace of mind, as well as a reliable stash of necessary items.
BC Quake Premium Survival Supplies have several different kits to meet different needs. For example, there are kits that can provide shelter, warmth, nutrition, and a means to purify water for drinking and cooking.
