Procedure for Earthquake Safety

Even in a severe earthquake, there is much you can do to prevent or minimize injuries or damage to property. During An Earthquake:

If you are inside:

  • Stay inside.
  • Crawl under a table or desk, or stand in a doorway and watch for falling objects.
  • Stay away from windows, mirrors, overhead fixtures, filing cabinets, bookcases and electrical equipment.

If you are outside:

  • Move to an open area away from buildings, trees and power lines.
  • If forced to stand near a building, watch for falling objects.

If you are in an automobile:

  • Stop your vehicle in the nearest open area.
  • Stay in the vehicle until the shaking stops.

After An Earthquake

  • Remain calm and be prepared  for aftershocks.
  • Be guided by emergency personnel.  If evacuation is ordered, proceed to the nearest clear exit.
  • Do not move seriously injured persons unless they are in obvious immediate danger (of fire, building collapse, etc.)
  • Open doors carefully and watch for falling objects.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • Do not use matches or lighters.
  • Avoid using telephones.
