Welcome to CADRE’s earthquake safety page!
“Earthquake Safety in Your Home” includes topics that everyone should know to stay safe when the ground shakes. Topics include: hazards in the home, where to get reliable information, available resources to help you recover, supplies needed, protections for undocumented community members, when and how to turn off natural gas and more!
We believe that everyone should have access to earthquake safety information in their preferred language. That’s why we’re continuing to add additional translated recordings and written materials. If any translations are inaccurate, please contact us.
What is Equity? 2021 Executive Order: “For purposes of this order: (a) The term “equity” means the consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals, including individuals who belong to underserved communities that have been denied such treatment, such as Black, Latino, and Indigenous and Native American persons, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and other persons of color; members of religious minorities; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) persons; persons with disabilities; persons who live in rural areas; and persons otherwise adversely affected by persistent poverty or inequality…
The term “equity” refers to fairness and justice and is distinguished from equality: Whereas equality means providing the same to all, equity means recognizing that we do not all start from the same place and must acknowledge and make adjustments to imbalances. The process is ongoing, requiring us to identify and overcome intentional and unintentional barriers arising from bias or systemic structures.”
