Prepare For An Earthquake

Prepare for an Earthquake

The only solution then is to prepare for an earthquake. While you cannot prevent one, you and your family can be one of those who are more than ready if such a thing happens. Having an emergency plan of action for any kind of disaster, much less an earthquake is not only sound thinking, but when disaster hits, family members know exactly what to do.

Steps to Prepare

Each family must take steps to prepare for an earthquake or any other kind of natural disaster. It is important to be self-sufficient, in case emergency personnel are unable to get to your location. As the flight attendant tells you as you wait for take-off "put on your own oxygen mask first, so that you can help others." A family earthquake plan does just that.

Here are some of the things you can do to prepare for an earthquake or any other natural disaster.
• Develop a disaster plan for the family

• Ensure a cache of food supplies for the family for at least 3 days, more if possible

• Keep an emergency medical kit and other emergency items handy, stored in a safe location

• Keep extra prescriptions, eye glasses and other needed items in the emergency supplies

• Make plans for pets

• Shut-off the gas immediately after an earthquake, don't light a match first

While this list is certainly not comprehensive, it gives you some ideas of what you need to do in order to prepare.
