Why is it so important to be prepared for an earthquake? As you have learned, earthquakes strike without warning. In the aftermath of a quake, utility lines are often broken. When this happens, electricity, gas, water, and telephone services may be unavailable for hours, days, or even weeks. Would you be able to cope? By preparing ahead of time, you will have the supplies you need when you need them. Being prepared will also help you feel calmer and less stressed if an earthquake does strike.
