I work in an area prone to earthquakes large enough to inflict serious damage to my office, my building and me.

As a partner in my firm, a wife and mother, this posed an unacceptable level of risk to those who care about and need me.

My LifeGuard puts us at ease knowing I have a very safe place to immediately go when these earthquakes happen. When I think about the day a big one happens, I now feel confident and empowered instead of helpless.
