GET READY KERN | Do this immediately after a major earthquake
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
California is due for a major earthquake, so when the big one hits, responding correctly after the shaking stops is crucial.
Capt. Jason Knaggs of the Kern County Fire Department recommends checking your gas and water, as well power directly after the disaster.
Treading lightly around your home is important, as well, as objects may have moved during the earthquake.
Megin Hughes, disaster program manager for the American Red Cross, said the key to responding well after an earthquake is being prepared beforehand.
