Win a FREE Earthquake Kit by Emergency Kits 4 All
Let’s face it, L.A. has more than enough earthquakes to remind us all that we need to be prepared in the event of the “big one.” It’s not something most of us moms want to think about. If you’re like me, it took a well-informed neighbor to encourage me to gather the basic necessities for an earthquake kit. That was years ago. It’s time for me to update my kit! Are you one of those people who, like me, let your earthquake preparedness essentials get lost, misplaced or outdated?
