  • 1. National Preparedness Month Safety Tip Boots Under the Bed! Here in the Great Northwest we live in earthquake coun- try. September is National Preparedness Month and the Belle- vue Office of Emergency Management is urging you to do something simple to prepare for a possible earthquake. Keep a pair of boots under your bed. One result of the earthquake can be violent shaking that can cause glass windows to shatter. If the earthquake causes a power outage and occurs at night, you will need to have your safety equipment close by. To keep yourself and members of your family safe from glass and debris, keep a pair of boots or sturdy shoes under the bed. Other items to have under the bed with your boots:  Seasonal clothing  Work gloves  Flashlight with batteries  Radio with batteries  First aid kit Bellevue Office of Emergency Management Contact: Vernon Owens for more information Email: vowens@bellevuewa.gov Phone: 425.452.6033
