Natural disasters, like earthquakes, happen unexpectedly and can create major disruptions that last long after the event is over. Emergency situations may force individuals and families to quickly find shelter or evacuate from their homes, workplaces, or other settings. By being prepared and planning ahead, Artesia residents can quickly take life-saving actions to keep them safe in an earthquake. It’s important for all households and businesses in the City of Artesia to prepare a disaster plan; identify safe spots to take cover in places where they live, work, and play; familiarize themselves with emergency escape routes; develop a communication plan; and have an emergency supply kit readily available.
