The QR Center has been very popular with families in Northern California but we’ve also received dozens of enquiries from folks in Southern California who are equally eager to prepare for survival after a big earthquake
Gardena, Calif. (Vocus) March 19, 2008
Residents of Los Angeles and Southern California who want to be prepared for the next big earthquake can now take advantage of the most complete earthquake kit on the market. Starting today, Disaster Survival Solutions, a company located just miles from the epicenter of the 1906 earthquake, has taken all the guesswork out of earthquake preparedness and is now delivering and installing the QR Center to Los Angeles area residents.
“The QR Center has been very popular with families in Northern California but we’ve also received dozens of enquiries from folks in Southern California who are equally eager to prepare for survival after a big earthquake,” says Chris McCloy, founder of Disaster Survival Solutions. “The QR Center is available for immediate home delivery and provides complete peace of mind. It enables a family of up to seven people, plus pets, to be completely self-sufficient, outside their home, until state and local resources, and the private sector, are able to respond.”
In Southern California, the last major earthquake on the San Andreas fault occurred 150 years ago (1857), rupturing the fault from Central California to San Bernardino. Further south along the San Andreas fault, from San Bernardino through the Coachella Valley to the Salton Sea, over 300 years have passed since the last major earthquake (around 1690). Another major earthquake is likely to happen on this section of the fault within our lifetime. When it does, all of Southern California will be shaken and many areas may be heavily damaged.
The Quake Relief Center is the only earthquake kit that addresses the fundamental reality that many people will be homeless after an earthquake. It is housed in a durable weatherproof deck box that is designed to be located directly outside the home and contains everything needed to be self-sufficient after a big quake: a personalized disaster action plan, all the supplies needed to live outside for up to a week, and an annual inspection to ensure the kit is fresh and ready to go. With a QR Center, just minutes after a natural disaster occurs, residents of Southern California can feel safe, knowing they will have a secure, warm, sheltered environment with lighting, hygiene essentials and a week’s supply of food and water.
The QR Center is sold in various sizes from 2-person through 7-person. All kits include everything needed to survive outside the home for up to a week as well as the Quake Relief Plan — two comprehensive binders that contain step-by-step instructions for before, during and after an earthquake. One binder is stored inside the box, and a second binder is kept inside the home. Copies of vital emergency contact information are printed on small cards that can be stored in wallets, purses, and children's backpacks. Survival kits for cats and dogs are also available.
