Do you find yourself stressing out about what do if the "Big One" hits? If so, you're not alone, but don't let that fear prevent you from creating a safety plan for you and your loved ones. Take your first step toward becoming an emergency preparedness guru by downloading the American Red Cross Earthquake App (FREE) for your smartphone.
You can receive text notifications when there is an earthquake in your area and, even better, this app enables you to send out a custom "I'm safe" alert to your friends and family. It can also show you Red Cross shelters in the area, provide earthquake safety tips, and function as a flashlight or strobe light at the push of a button.
In case of an emergency, just remember it's okay to leave that pair of expensive heels behind. You can always replace those shoes, but you're one of a kind.
