Why One Week Instead of 72-Hour Preparedness

Most local, state, and national organizations are still promoting the 72-hour concept. In a large-scale event, such as a significant earthquake in the Bay Area, it may take longer than 72 hours before we can get supplies and support to all our residents.

In an effort to realistically plan for disasters in our county, we encourage you to be prepared to survive on your own for up to one week.
