On July 4th and 5th of 2019, two major earthquakes – in fact the biggest to hit Southern California in decades – reminded us that disasters like earthquakes, floods, tornados, fires, etc. can strike at any time.

No matter where you live, it is wise to be prepared for disasters. Here are some tips to help you keep important documents safe and what to do when disaster strikes.
