Topanga Tim Safety Tips — Shake, Rattle and Roll

 

Cheney Charlie was peering under a magnifying glass, carefully painting his collection of miniature Hobbits when the room starting rocking and rolling. Earthquake!

We call Charlie “Mister Preparedness” so he knew to Drop, Cover and Hold On. He rode his big old oak dining table halfway across the room before the temblor stopped. Charlie was shaken but unhurt. (The Hobbits required some glue.)

You can get all sorts of tips on earthquake preparedness at http://www.shakeout.org/california/. Then put what you learn to the test by participating in the 2012 Great California ShakeOut on October 18, at 10:18 am.

Practicing before The Big One could save the lives of you and your loved ones.

“Topanga Tim” is brought to you by the Topanga Emergency Management Plan as a public service.
