If you have a mobile home there are steps you can take to protect your home as well. Take a look under your home. If the home is only supported with concrete blocks or metal jacks you need better protection. Have an "engineered tie-down system" or an earthquake-resistant bracing system (ERBS) installed. Installation time varies up to a few days. Many of the systems can be used for retrofit or new installations and can be relocated when you move. Many systems also have the ability to handle sloping sites.
