KNOW WHAT TO DO DURING AN EARTHQUAKE

»

If you are indoors:- STAY THERE and move only a few steps to the closest previously identified safe place in the room. DUCK, COVER, and HOLD ON. Get under a table and hang on to it. Protect your eyes and head. Get away from windows, heavy furniture or appliances that might fall on you. Get out of the kitchen, which is a very dangerous place. DO NOT run downstairs or rush outside while the building is shaking.
» If you are outside:- Get into the OPEN, away from buildings, power lines, trees, and anything else that might fall on you. If you are in the city, seek shelter under archways or doorways but do not enter the building. DO NOT try to walk through narrow roads or gullies.
» If you are driving or in a vehicle:- STOP SLOWLY. Move your car as far out of traffic (and buildings) as possible. DO NOT stop on or under a bridge, trees, light posts, power lines, or signs. STAY INSIDE your car until the shaking stops. Should you resume driving, watch for cracks in the roads, fallen buildings, stones or trees etc.
» If you are in a mountainous area:- WATCH OUT for falling rock, landslides, trees, and other debris that could be loosened by the earthquake.
