EARTHQUAKE DISASTER PREPAREDNESS
Before an Earthquake
Prepare an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.
Fasten shelves securely and place large or heavy objects on lower shelves.
Breakable items should be stored in low, closed cabinets with a latch.
Heavy wall items should be attached securely and away from beds, couches, or anywhere people might be underneath.
Brace overhead light fixtures and top-heavy lamps.
Have defective electrical wiring and leaky gas connections repaired by a qualified professional.
Secure water heater, refrigerator, furnace and gas appliances with strapping or bolting. If recommended by your gas company, have an automatic
vibration shut-off valve installed.
Keep cracks in ceiling or foundation repaired and check often for structural defects.
Store weed killers, pesticides, and flammable products on bottom shelves in closed cabinets with a latch.
Locate safest spot in each room under a sturdy table or against inside wall. No doorways.
Hold family earthquake drills: Drop, cover and hold on.
