5 measures to be prepared for earthquakes

5 measures to be prepared for earthquakes
International institutions such as the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Japan Meteorological Agency, the California Emergency Management Agency, among others, recommend the following measures to prevent and reduce damage caused by an earthquake:
  1. In our home, determine the objects that could become a danger during an earthquake, such as paintings, mirrors, lamps and flower pots; and relocate them so that they cannot fall or harm anyone when an earthquake occurs.
  2. Practice drills. In advance, each member of your family, office or school should know where to stand in case of an earthquake. For example, under a strong desk or table.
  3. Know where and how to turn off electricity, gas and water at main switches and outlets.
  4. Agree with family members on a contact phone number outside the city that they can call to let others know that they are okay.
  5. Keep a stock of non-perishable food and drinking water for at least 3 days and store it in a small box. Also, have an emergency kit on hand with:
  • Portable radio
  • Battery powered flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Bottled water
  • Canned foods and dried grains
  • A copy of your personal documents
  • Whistle
  • Spare battery (charged) for cell phones
