Earthquake Preparedness

One of LBT’s top priorities is the safety of our customers, whether on the bus or at home. The Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) Don’t Get Caught Off Guard campaign is a critical resource for earthquake preparedness. While earthquakes are largely unpredictable, there are recommended actions you can take to protect yourself in case of one.
Download the free MyShake app for audio and visual warnings before an earthquake, giving subscribers crucial seconds to find cover. The app is available for both iPhone and Android users.
