Video :: Tennessee Earthquake Preparedness Week - Keeping Children Safe

Tuesday, February 15, 2011 | 07:40am

From TEMA's Week-Long Series on Earthquake Safety



TRANSCRIPT: I'm Jason Arbogast with Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.

We're all too familiar with floods and tornados in Tennessee, but it's just as likely our state will experience a major earthquake within our lifetime.

It's important for your children understand what to do in case you are not with them during an earthquake. Make sure you and your children know their school or daycare's emergency procedures for disasters.

This will help you coordinate where, when, and how to reunite with your child after an earthquake.

Preparedness is an individual responsibility.

I'm an emergency manager and I'm asking you to plan and practice what to do if an earthquake strikes.
