Earthquake safety tips
• Drop to the ground (before the earthquake drops you).
• Take cover by getting under a sturdy desk or table.
• Hold on to your shelter and be prepared to move with it until the shaking stops.
If there is no table or desk near you, drop to the ground and then, if possible, move to an inside corner of the room. Be in a crawling position to protect your vital organs and be ready to move if necessary, and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms.
Do not move to another location or outside. Earthquakes occur without any warning and may be so violent that you cannot run or crawl. You are more likely to be injured if you try to move around during strong shaking.
