Identify safe places indoors and out.
Under sturdy furniture like a heavy desk or table. Against an inside wall. Away from where glass could shatter around windows, mirrors, pictures, or where heavy furniture could fall over. In the open, away from buildings, trees, telephone and electrical lines, overpasses, and elevated expressways.
- Take cover and protect your head, neck and torso.
- Remain indoors until the shaking has stopped and you are sure it is safe to exit.
- Evacuate if the alarm sounds or if told to do so by Emergency Responders.
- Move away from buildings and other things that may collapse and fall.
