One thing about doorways - they usually don't have televisions, bookcases, ceiling fans, lamps, crockery, trophy cases, or whatever near them. Give me a door swinging over a bookcase failling any day of the week.

I have a bug out bag prepped all the time. I don't really keep enough food and water around.

Water storage is half the answer. For storage I rotate the water out, stored in 2.5 gallon containers just pull, use and replace every few months. Water purification is the other half. Your stored water should last 2-4 days. Water heaters and toilets are great sources.

My kit includes back country portable purifiers and parts needed for any long haul disaster. A stove with a big stash of fuel canisters is always a good bet.


And weed.

I created two "emergency" bags for my use. One at home next to the door and one in my car. They include a lot of little things to help me be sustainable for at least a few days or until I can get to my family "safe" spot. If you need ot travel or keep one in your car, you can protect yourself (at least a bit) compared to the multitude of unprepared folks.

My bag includes:

- First aid kit (with ALL kinds of stuff in it)
- Emergency blanket
- Fire starter with tinder
- Small Axe
- Tarp
- 6 liters of water
- Powerbars and other snacks that "keep" for a while
- Water purification system
- Paracord (lots of it)
- Knife (I keep one on me pretty much all the time)
- Change of clothes and shoes including a hat and jacket
- And dozens of other things...etc, etc, etc.

You have to decide what you put in it but this would serve my needs for a few days.

All of this fits in a mid-sized Jansport backpack and was relatively inexpensive...and worth every penny should I need it. Everyone in my family has one and I made two for my GF as well.

Even more than this, start planning WHAT you would do if an EQ hits - whether you are on the road or at home. Having a plan is a HUGE first step towards being prepared and taking care of yourself.

since this thread offers good advice, the thread made a sticky in the memory of the '89 bay area quake (which I had no experience with) and a good message that a similar or bigger quake can happen again...

be prepared....

The water supply for a lot of the Bay Area is served through Hetch Hetchy and EMBUD water lines. Those lines cross the Hayward fault. IIRC the Bay Area would have 30 days maximum of water if those lines were destroyed.
