Get up to $3,000 Toward an Earthquake Retrofit
Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) helps homeowners lessen the potential for damage during an earthquake. EBB offers a grant of up to $3,000 toward a seismic retrofit for qualifying older houses.
In addition to the $3,000 grant, we are introducing a new grant specifically for low-income homeowners (income up to $72,080 per household), as funding permits. We have helped thousands of California homeowners complete seismic retrofits!

What is CERT? I AM CERT!
If a major earthquake (or any disaster) hits, do you …
have enough supplies for a minimum of 72 hours up to an entire month for all family members, including pets?
know how to turn off the gas?
know how to safely turn off the power?
know how to apply first aid?
have enough water for all of your family and your pets?
have provisions for living outside your home for a length of time if the structure is compromised?
It is important to know, if a major disaster occurs, the LAFD, paramedics, police…WILL NOT COME! They will be deployed FIRST to major incidents such as collapsed buildings. That is why you constantly hear…You MUST be prepared to take care of yourself. In the CERT course they say…“The Greatest Good for the Greatest Number of People.” When you are trained, you are far more equipped to deal with your circumstances without needing aid from outside sources.
