Earthquake Rubble Collapse Disaster HousePrepare before an earthquake strikes, not following. Bear in mind, do not eat or drink anything from open pockets particularly if it’s in proximity to broken glass. If the water source to your house is away, you can drink out of the water heater, or from melted ice cubes and canned veggies. If you can, use water filtration bottles and water purification tablets to clean all of the water before consumption.
Measure 2 – Drop, Cover & Hold On If you are indoors, stay put. Get under a table or desk and hold on. Avoid windows and unstable material like furniture, appliances, knives, etc.. Try not to run from a vibration building. Falling debris may hit you until you make it out.
It does not take long for a building to begin to crumble. Especially for older structures which aren’t up to current building codes. Newer buildings and bridges are designed to mitigate the effects of earthquakes. They’re intended to influence and move with the motion rather than being stiff and breaking up.
If you are outside, get beyond any limiting influence, far from constructions, electric wires, smokestacks, and anything else that may fall on you.
If you’re driving, gradually come to a stop. Move your automobile out-of-the-way of any action (building, moving vehicles, etc.) and do not stop under any scaffold, bridge, tree, light post or hints. Stay inside your car until the point that the vibration stops. Following the trembling stops, and if necessary use the first aid supplies on your roadside emergency kit and try to find aid. When you continue, be careful and keep an eye out for any obstructions on the road.
Step 5 – What to do if your close mountains
If you’re in hilly land, watch out for falling rocks, avalanches, trees, and other debris which could be freed by the tremors.
If you’re able to, put on a few sturdy thick-soled shoes (in case you step on broken glass, garbage, and so forth.)
Measure 7 – Watch out for aftershocks
Be aware of the possibility of aftershocks. Another larger tremor may happen when you least suspect it.
The best method is to survive an earthquake is to prepare before it strikes, not after. Get an emergency kit and make a family emergency plan.
