Emergency Preparedness Tip of the Week: Items on Shelves

Tip: Check each room of your house. If you see heavy or breakable items on shelves, on top of cupboards or window ledges, remove them. Place them on lower shelves and secure them with quake hold or secure them in a place where they will not do damage. Earthquakes can turn these items into projectiles. In addition, secure tall, free standing furniture to the wall with a bracket.
