Be Prepared For An Earthquake

4 Person Standard Survival Kit

The best way to be prepared is to get a earthquake survival kit together. Teach your children what to do in case of an earthquake and have a plan in place for what to do if there is one.

The first part of your earthquake safety disaster plan should include everything you can do ahead of time --

• Secure breakables in your home
• Develop a disaster plan
• Develop an evacuation plan - and set a meeting location
• Make a plan for pets and animals
• Review your home for structural weaknesses
• Set aside water and food reserves
• Keep extra prescriptions and eyeglasses available

During an earthquake -

• During an earthquake protect yourself and small children
• Stay positioned - don't move around until after the earthquake stops

After an earthquake -

• Check for injuries among family members
• Check for structural damage to the home
• When safe, put your safety disaster plan into action

It's important to have the details worked out in advance of when a disaster hits. After a disaster, some people may panic and having a list of what to do in an orderly fashion helps to calm people down. When your world has just been shaken, often, the best thing to do is begin checking off the things you need to do: return to some form of normalcy.

Remember that during an earthquake you can be cut off from emergency services, water, fuel, food, banks and other retail outlets for an extended period. Be prepared!
