DUCK COVER & HOLD

Wherever you are, try to take cover under something sturdy. It could be a table, desk or some other piece of furniture. Stay away from windows, mirrors, hanging objects or tall furniture. Hold on to that furniture and get ready to move along with it. Have earthquake drills every six months with your family, or even co-workers.

CLEAR PATHWAYS

Keep pathways in rooms to exit places clear, and especially hallways. Hallways are one of the safest places to be in an earthquake.

KNOW HOW TO SHUT OFF UTILITIES

Find and learn how to shut off valves for water, gas and electricity.

PREPARE TO BE SELF SUFICIENT FOR AN EXTENDED TIME

In emergency and disaster situations, emergency personnel may be overwhelmed. Emergency aid and basic assistance may not be available for 72 hours or more. Keep a supply of extra water, foods, medications and clothing ready and available.

CREATE or BUY AN EARTHQUAKE SAFETY KIT

Have emergency kits available in your car, home and office that contain all of the essentials like blankets, first aid kits, water, food, extra cash/change, portable radio, flashlight, sanitation items, etc.
