10  ESSENTIAL TIPS  TO  STAY SAFE  DURING  AN EARTHQUAKE

Create a safety plan

01.

Develop an emergency plan with your family or household members, including designated meeting points and communication methods.

Identify safe spots

02.

Identify sturdy furniture or structures in each room where you can take cover during an earthquake, such as under a sturdy table or against an interior wall.

Secure heavy objects

03.

Secure heavy furniture, appliances, and objects to prevent them from toppling during an earthquake. Use straps, brackets, or adhesives to secure them to the walls or floor.

Stay away from windows

04.

Move away from windows, glass, and mirrors during an earthquake to avoid potential shattering and injuries from shattered glass.

Drop, cover, and hold on

05.

For those who enjoy a crispy texture, the Spider Roll is a must-try. It consists of deep-fried soft-shell crab, cucumber, and sometimes spicy mayo, providing a delightful crunch.

Stay indoors

06.

If you are inside a building during an earthquake, stay indoors and avoid running outside. Falling debris and collapsing structures pose significant risks.

Stay clear of doorways

07.

Contrary to popular belief, doorways are not necessarily the safest place to be during an earthquake. Instead, seek sturdy furniture or take cover under a table.

Be cautious near stairs

08.

Exercise caution when using stairs during an earthquake, as they can become unstable. Hold onto the handrails and proceed carefully.

Stay informed

09.

Keep a battery-powered radio or a mobile device handy to stay updated on emergency alerts, instructions, and news updates during and after an earthquake.

Practice earthquake drills

10.

Regularly practice earthquake drills with your family or household members to ensure everyone knows what to do when the ground starts shaking.
