from natural disasters. even though we are on the west coast something out here like an earthquake, a wildland fire or a flood we could be in the same situation. so simple things like turning off your gas can save life and property. nat sound while those facing what may be a catastrophic situation in the wake of a hurricane residents in florida and texas had one adavantage we won't have. they're fortunate to know it's coming we here in california have earthquakes which are going to give us no warning at all. dean reese wanted those visiting the event to know just what that earthquake might feel like. it's great to feel what it's like instead of watching a video. you need to prepare now before the next earthquake occurs because after the fact you won't be able to get food, water, those necessary supplies that you'll need as a family to survive. bay emergency medical technicians put fairgoers in a simulated home fire to show them how to survive. smoke tends to rise and if you stand up and inhale that smoke you'll pass out. when road closures and power outtages occur the most important thing
is having what you need for the first seventy two hours. we need people to learn how to help themselves at least for a short period of time until we can get in there and start the recovery effort. shondra williams got the message. i bought three earthquake kits to be ready whenever the day comes. you have to be prepared so i want to be prepared. in castro valley jeff pierce kron four news.

the unlucky among us in this breach the type of information exposed gives the bad guys all the ingrediants they need for identity theft. sound from erica sandberg / personal finance expert typically the way people find out if their identity has been stolen is they get a new bill in the mail for a credit card or loan they did not ask for. so watch out for that another thing you can do is check your credit report twice a year you get one free check with annual credit report dot com look through it closely for anything out of order one thing you can do is sign up for a credit monitoring service like all clear id they average around $15-$20 a month.. they notify you if anything changes in your credit report and they cover you with identity theft insurance if you lose assets. for the 143 million americans affected by this data breach equifax is offering free credit monitoring by a service they own called trusted id to sign up for it you have to enter your last name and the last 6 digits of your social security number. sound from erica sandberg / personal finance expert erica says you might want to hold off a few days on signing up for that and make sure equifax has their house in order.. their security tightened before you hand over more info sound from erica sandberg / personal finance expert erica recomends if you're not in the market for a new credit card, or car or
home loan the safest thing to do freeze your credit report with the big three agencies, trans union, experian, and equifax. you can always unfreeze later. but while it's frozen nothing new can be opened in your name this is the nuclear option for preventing id theft. sound from erica sandberg / personal finance expert "go ahead and freeze it" (justine) coming up... a grandma is behind bars for the cruel way she punished her young grandaughter.... we'll explain up ahead.(jr stone)
