  1. 1. Have emergency kits and plans ready on the fly.
    We can’t prevent an earthquake from happening, but we can prepare for the aftermath. At home, have emergency supplies stored and easily available. Also make sure your furniture is firmly in place and figure out which spots you can hide under. The same goes for when you’re in an office building. Make sure you know the emergency exits and have a small emergency kit with you at all times.

    2. During the quake, duck and cover.
    Once the shaking and quaking begins, find the nearest sturdy desk or table you can use for cover. The number one priority is to protect yourself from possible falling debris. If there isn’t anything you can hide under, find something secure and solid to protect your head with.

    3. Stay put until the shaking is over.
    Your first instinct during an earthquake is probably to rush outside or exit the building as soon as possible. This shouldn’t be the case as it can be very dangerous. Depending on the earthquake’s intensity, you may become too disoriented to walk and this may cause more harm than good. Stay in a safe area for a couple of minutes, and as soon as the shaking stops, make your way outside.

    4. Keep calm and don’t panic.
    Panic and chaos are your biggest enemies during natural disasters. It doesn’t help if you let your anxiety get the best of you; it will only make the situation worse. Try to keep as calm as possible so that you can think of how to go about things in a rational way. Help those around you if possible and diffuse any tension in your vicinity to enable and ensure the safety of everyone.

    5. Check your surroundings and head to your evacuation site.
    Once you have finally exited the building you’re in, check your surroundings and look for the safest path you can travel on. Head to open spaces and avoid power lines and buildings because aftershocks may still occur. Once the coast is clear, head to your nearest designated evacuation center or the meetup place you and your friends/family have decided on beforehand.
