  How can I plan ahead for an Earth Quake?

Make sure each member of your family knows what to do no matter where they are when EQs occur :
  • Establish a meeting place where you can all reunite afterward.
  • Find out about EQ plans developed by children's school or day care.
  • Remember transportation may be disrupted, keep some emergency supplies--food, liquids, and comfortable shoes, for example--at work.
Know where you gas, electric and water main shutoffs are and how to turn them off if there is a leak or electrical short.   Make sure older members of the family can shut off utilities.
Locate your nearest fire and police stations and emergency medical facility.
Talk to your neighbors--how could they help you, or you them after an EQ.
Take Red Cross First Aid and CPR Training Course.

  What should I do during an EQ?

First do the Drop, Cover, Hold for the initial 1-2 minutes. After that leave the building and assemble in the pre-identified safe   place outside.
Do not use matches, lighters, camp stoves or barbecues, electrical equipment, appliances until you are sure there are no   gas leaks. They may create a spark that could ignite leaking gas and cause an explosion and fire.
Do not use your telephone, except for a medical or fire emergency. You could tie up the lines needed for emergency   response. If the phone doesn't work send someone for help.
