Earthquake Preparedness

The purpose of the ShakeOut is to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes, and to get prepared at work, school, and home.

Uniting Communities & Preparing the Nation

Citizen Corps is FEMA's grassroots strategy to bring together government and community leaders to involve citizens in all hazards emergency preparedness and resilience. Citizen Corps asks you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared, to get training in first aid and emergency skills, and to volunteer to support local emergency responders, disaster relief, and community safety.


Whether it’s an earthquake, wildfire, flood, or COVID-19, Listos California wants everyone to get ready and stay safe. The American Red Cross of Riverside County is a proud LISTOS California partner and encourages residents to:

  1. GET ALERTS to know what to do

  3. PACK a “go-bag” with things you need
  4. BUILD a “stay” box for when you can’t leave
  5. HELP friends and neighbors get ready
