Services We Offer

We offer a variety of services to help you get better prepared for earthquakes.

Free information

If you don't live in the San Jose (CA) area, or if you just prefer a do-it-yourself approach, this website contains plenty of information to help you decide what preparations are appropriate for you. You'll need to invest a bit of time, but the information here won't cost you a dime.

Read and browse here as much as you like, and feel free to make hard-copies for your own personal use, but remember that everything here is copyrighted so you are not allowed to distribute or repost any of our material. Of course, we'd be delighted if you choose to post links back to this site.


If you decide to purchase some supplies the process of finding them can be daunting and time-consuming. Our business is based on providing you with specialized information, not on trying to sell you physical stuff, but as a service to make it easier for you to prepare we do provide links to recommended products on our Supplies page.

Free talks

South Bay Safety Guy would be pleased to give a presentation on Family Earthquake Preparedness to your service club, school group or PTA, homeowners' association, Meetup group, or other organization.

Neighborhood Workshops

Our workshops are longer and much more hands-on than the free talks, and they are personalized to your group and your family.

Family Workshops

If you would like South Bay Safety Guy's undivided attention, you may schedule a “Family Workshop”.
