[NOTE: this is a repeat of a June 17 webinar on the same topic, with some updates]
We live in earthquake country and know that large earthquakes may happen at any time. Fortunately there are simple steps we all can take to be "safer at home" before the earth shakes– even while being safer at home due to COVID-19.
This is why ECA will be hosting the Safer At Home Webinar Series over the next few months, with a special webinar for each of the Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety (www.EarthquakeCountry.org/sevensteps). The information provided will also be useful in the workplace or in schools.
The first webinar will focus on Step 1 of the Seven Steps: “Secure Your Space” by identifying hazards and securing moveable items.
Earthquake shaking can move almost anything, even large or heavy items. Imagine your home or workplace being picked up and shaken sideways – what would be thrown around? What might hit you or others, what valuables might be damaged, and how might your exits be blocked?
This interactive webinar will show you how easy it is to secure contents in your home (or elsewhere) to reduce these dangers to life and property. Live demonstrations and videos from industry experts will show you how to install or apply straps, latches, and earthquake putty, while answering your questions.
