Disaster preparedness can prevent a bad situation from becoming worse. Emergencies such as earthquakes  needs thorough planning.

This are the things you should do in case of earthquake.

  • Make sure you have a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, and extra batteries at home.
  • Make up a plan of where to meet your family after an earthquake.
  • Stay calm! If you’re indoors, stay inside. If you’re outside, stay outside.
  • Don’t use elevators (they’ll probably get stuck anyway).
  • DROP down onto your hands and knees before the earthquake knocks you down. This position protects you from falling but allows you to still move if necessary.
  • COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under the shelter of a sturdy table or desk. If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall or next to low-lying furniture that won’t fall on you, and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.
  • HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.
