In light of the recent earthquakes in SoCal and with the Hayward fault cutting through the City, Berkeley faces a significant earthquake risk.  Earthquakes can't be predicted- that is why it is important for everyone to know the proper steps to being prepared for an earthquake, the actions to take during shaking, and things to look for after the shaking stops. 

Amber Davis, Health Services Program Specialist from the Public Health Division-Emergency Preparedness of the City of Berkeley, will come to Ashby Village and talk to us about basic preparedness with a focus on earthquakes. Her presentation is specifically tailored to older adults and includes a discussion of sheltering in place, reunification, making a disaster kit and finding out emergency information.
