What do you do in an earthquake?
We’ve all heard the phrase “Drop, hold, and cover!” The first thing you should do in an earthquake is follow these steps. Move very carefully to the closest and safest place, get under a large sturdy object, and cover your head and eyes. You want to avoid the possibility of getting hit by falling objects or stepping onto broken glass, so be very careful as you move around. Stay away from windows, shelving units, and anything hanging on the walls. If you are unsure about the situation outside, stay where you are, get on the ground, and cover your head. If the earthquake begins while you are outside, find a safe place away from power lines, streetlights, trees, and buildings. Crouch down and remain stationary until the earthquake ends. Building debris, power lines, streetlights, and falling trees can all cause injuries. If an earthquake begins while you are driving, pull your vehicle to a safe location, stop the car, and remain stationary with your seatbelt on until the earthquake ends.

Prepare your home for an earthquake
Here are quick tips to prepare your home for an earthquake.
Bolt tall furniture to wall studs and anchor tall and heavy items capable of falling, such as computers, books, and televisions.
Install bolts or strong latches on all cabinets to prevent the items inside the cabinets from falling out.
Move fragile items, heavy objects, and large objects to the lowest shelves.
Keep china, glass, bottled foods, and other breakable items in closed cabinets with latches.
Hang mirrors, pictures, and other heavy items, away from places people are likely to sit or sleep, such as couches and beds.
Secure overhead lights, chandeliers, and anything hanging from the ceiling.
Secure the water heater by strapping it to wall studs. Water heaters are often the best source for water after an earthquake.
