BROCHURE # 100709

In fact, if you are into preparedness you should print out this brochure and distribute to all the people you care about.

Besides a Construction company, a General Contractor, a Building Company and  a Maintenance Company, The Ultimate Handyman is involved with earthquake preparedness. The Ultimate Handyman would like all our clients and fellow neighbors to be prepared in the event of a catastrophic earthquake.  

In consideration with our neighbors here in Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills and adjacent cities, The Ultimate Handyman prepared this brochure with all the essentials you need to know in order to get prepared.

For this reason, we at The Ultimate Handyman mailed the brochure, available at the link above, to 10,000 of our closest neighbors, unfortunately we did not have the means to print out and send to all residents in Los Angeles, but we posted it here for anyone interested.
