Californians' Confidence in Government Disaster Recovery Increases
Nearly two-thirds of Californians say they’re worried about injury or property damage from an earthquake or other disaster, but they’re increasingly confident in the government’s ability to respond, according to a new Public Policy Institute of California survey.
The survey found that 64 percent of Californians are very or somewhat worried about a disaster affecting their lives. For people in the Bay Area, Los Angeles or Orange County, that number is even higher. Half of Californians have a disaster supplies kit, but only 44 have a definite disaster plan, including where a family should meet if cellphone service fails during an emergency.
