QuakePrepare provides earthquake preparedness products and services to homeowners who want to make their home secure and their family safe. We provide information about how to prepare for a serious earthquake, what to do during an earthquake, and what to look for after the quake.
“I am unsure about how well my home is secured to its foundation.” We’ve seen many retrofits that were done improperly. Don’t have a false sense of security – get a QuakeConsult and be sure.
“I was worried about our retrofit, but was surprised to hear how bad it was. I am very impressed with this service. – Kim Walker
Are you curious about which appliances, furniture and wall hangings are ready to injure you? What should be secured besides the water heater? What about the furnace, the refrigerator, the stove, the washer/dryer? Are these dangerous? The QuakeConsult covers all this.
“I’ve read conflicting things about the safest place to be in each room in the house when an earthquake hits. What rooms should I avoid?” What about doorways, hallways, staircases? Do you have the answers? Again, covered in the QuakeConsult.
“I especially appreciated your showing me the safest places for me and the kids to be – I wasn’t aware of this.” – Aileen Liu
We visit the shut-offs for your gas, water, and electric supplies – you know where they are, but aren’t positive about how to work them, or if indeed they are workable at all. Is this you?
The goal of our service: The peace of mind that comes from being prepared for the major quake we all know is coming.
“Even if you feel you’re prepared for an earthquake, it’s worth it to get this consult. It’s great to have a pair of experienced eyes looking things over, and it gives you great peace of mind. – Brian Alcorn
Will a big quake burn your home to the ground? Unless you’re home 24/7, you should have an automatic gas shut-off valve installed at your gas meter. We’ve installed over 2,000 such valves: Click on “QuakeValves” on the right side of any page.
“I know I should have an emergency kit for my home and car, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.” If you’re in this group, we can help. We have various grades of kits available, customized to family size. Visit our QuakeKits page for kit contents and pricing.
