Sign up for Unshaken, and get earthquake-ready in six weeks

Earthquakes are a part of life in California, and we’re overdue for a major one. Your preparation now will help you be resilient — whatever happens once the shaking is over.

Maybe you’re a California native and think you know all there is to know about earthquakes. Maybe you just moved here and haven’t yet felt the earth move under your feet — or maybe you have, but every time you’ve felt it, you’ve known that you could be a little better prepared.

Our Unshaken newsletter is for all Californians. With this six-week course, we’ll deliver six weekly lessons to your inbox, paced for you to tackle them week by week.
