In a real disaster you will need to be able to cook food in sometimes harsh conditions. To start you will need a flint or magnesium fire starter. These items can be purchased at Amazon.com. Gas or electric stoves may not be available or operate during a true disaster.
Also a solar oven can be used to bake food usually made in a oven. This may be useful to make items that do not cook well over an open flame.
Cast iron cookware are made to perform well over a regular stove as well as an open flame. Cast iron pans will cook almost anything. Having extra cast iron or stainless steel pans is great for storing food too!

DROP down onto your hands and knees before the earthquake knocks you down. This position protects you from falling but allows you to still move if necessary.
COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under the shelter of a sturdy table or desk. If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall or next to low-lying furniture that won’t fall on you, and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.
HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.
