Photo: Dave Swanson Summary Have equipment, tools and safety items available. Work your way to high volume/high priority bridges first. Know your lifelines. Conduct inspections in your area ASAP after seismic event inspect all 10 bridge components.

Document findings on paper forms and report bridges inspected and damage found. Close damaged and failed bridges to protect the public report closures. Practice personal and public safety. Family Protection Plan Self and Family Plan

An employee that is overly concerned about his or her family is darn near worthless. The investment in dealing with this concern pays big dividends in the long run. Of course, pre-earthquake planning at home can prove to be invaluable for all concerned. (Richard J. Evans, San Francisco Fire Chief, October 17, 1989)

Self and Family Plan Am I really prepared? Whats there to worry about? How bad could it be?

What can I do? Self and Family Plan STEP 1: Find out which disasters you may experience where you live. STEP 2: Create a plan with your family. STEP 3: Put your plan into action. STEP 4: Practice and maintain your plan.

Self and Family Plan ACT NOW!!! IF YOU FAIL TO DO SOMETHING IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS - YOU WILL PROBABLY DO NOTHING AT ALL!!! Thank You
