We have had quite a few earth wobbles in the last week, which always brings to mind the BIG earthquake and how it is best to be prepared. One piece of paper we have had on the side of the fridge since 3/11 is the emergency phone recording info.
This is for incase you can't get through to your loved one, maybe their phone battery is dead, maybe a house fell on the phone or maybe the lines are too busy to get through. You can call this number (In Japan) and record a message so you can let your loved ones know where you are and that you are OK!
I imagine other countries have this system, it would be worth checking and setting one up for your family, especially if you live somewhere that is prone to natural disasters.
We keep a copy on the fridge and in the emergency bag, I should add one to my purse too really, incase I'm out and about.
