What to do in case of earthquake

California is famous for its natural beauty and sunny climate, but it is also susceptible to earthquakes due to its location on the San Andreas Fault. These events can happen at any time, so it is crucial to be prepared. Here are some tips on what to do before, during and after an earthquake to ensure your safety.

Before the earthquake:

  1. Prepare an emergency kit: Make sure you have an emergency supply kit in your home and car. Includes bottled water, non-perishable food, flashlight, battery-powered radio, first aid kit, and supplies for your pets, if you have them.
  2. Secure your home: Identify and correct potential risks in your home, such as heavy objects that could fall during an earthquake. Secure heavy furniture to the wall and place fragile items on low shelves.
  3. Create a family plan: Talk to your family about what to do in case of an earthquake. Set up a safe meeting place and teach everyone how to turn off gas, electricity, and water if necessary.

During the earthquake:

  1. Keep calm: If an earthquake occurs, remain calm and look for a safe place to protect yourself from possible falling objects.</ span>
  2. Protect Yourself: If you're indoors, drop, cover, and hold on to something sturdy, like a table or desk. If you are outdoors, stay away from buildings, trees and light poles.
  3. Do not run: Avoid running outside during an earthquake, as you could be injured by debris or broken glass.</span >

After the earthquake:

  1. Assess the damage: Once the earthquake has passed, assess the damage to your home and look for potential hazards, such as gas leaks or electrical wires fallen. If necessary, evacuate the area.
  2. Stay informed: Follow the news on radio, television, or social media for updates and instructions from local authorities.
  3. Help others: If you are safe and able to do so, provide help to those who need it, but remember above all to take care of your own safety.

Remember, preparation is essential to survive an earthquake. With a solid plan and the right supplies, you can stay safe and protect your loved ones in the event of an earthquake.
