6 Reasons Why Portlanders Should Prepare for an Earthquake Now – Portland Earthquake Kits

Don’t worry, your neighbors will share water with you, but you will be the one waiting in line for hours to return the favor. Consider storing extra water for others. They will really appreciate your kindness and return it ten times over. And after all, you are still going to see your neighbors every day after the earthquake is over!

There will be no 911 service. If you are hurt, it will be a neighbor who helps you, not a paramedic. If you have a Trauma Kit, you just might save the life of someone with a bleeding injury. A first aid course is not a bad idea either.

If you smell gas, grab your gas shut-off tool and turn it off; you just might save the neighborhood from going up in flames. After an earthquake, leave your fire extinguisher where your neighbors can see it in case a fire breaks out.

Don’t expect chaos and violence in the streets. That rarely happens after a disaster.

As we’ve seen time and time again, people come together to help one another. The question you should be asking yourself is, will you be the one helping others, or will others be helping you?

A little preparation goes a long way… and makes you feel good too.
