    Be Prepared! Is your area a danger zone?

    make an online hazard map of your area.

    Find out if you are living in a 100 year old- floodplain or other danger zone.

    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.

    Great tool Birdie, thanks. As you know , here in CA, we must provide a hazard disclosure statement to a buyer which outlines some natural and man made hazards in the area when purchasing property. I would like to stress that people here in CA actually read those. there could be some surprises.DO other states require this documentation as well in property transfer?

    That's a great question, I'm not sure. But what I AM sure about is the total shock when I bought a house here in Texas. Being a CA gal, I knew all too well the myriad of reams of paper to buying a house in CA. When I bought my house here in 2002, it consisted of about 12 pages. That's it!!! I couldn't get over it, and they all couldn't understand what I thought could possibly be missing out of the paperwork packet, LOL.

    If you google emergency management zones you can look for your state and find if you are in a danger zone.
