Earthquakes happen most frequently on the western coast of the United States, which means that California is a prime suspect of suffering from these natural disasters. Whilst technology has advanced tremendously, the tectonic plates are known to shift at any time, resulting in earthquakes from minor to catastrophic damages.

Before:

  • Secure freestanding objects, eg. bookcases, to the wall.
  • Fix ceiling lights to the building structure.
  • Fit all gas appliances with breakaway shut-off devices.
  • Brace unreinforced chimneys, masonry, concrete walls, and foundations.
  • Review your earthquake insurance to ensure that you are aware and satisfied with the coverage.

During:

  • If you are indoors, stay inside the home and move away from windows, skylights, doors.
  • Find cover and stay there until the shaking stops.
  • If you are outdoors, move away from electrical lines, trees, and buildings.
  • Drop to the ground and wait for the shaking to stop.
