Earthquake preparedness keypoints:

drop cover and hold on posters for earthquake preparedness

  1. Secure wall decorations, light fixtures, and furniture to avoid injury
  2. Secure heavy items to wall studs with anchors
  3. Keep an emergency kit at home, work and in your vehicle.
  4. Plan with your family on how to get in touch and where to meet. Download FEMA and Local Alert Apps.
  5. Practice “Drop, Cover, and Hold On”. Download and print free posters to get more aware.
  6. Learn what do after the shaking stops. Watch the video on what you should right after an earthquake.
  7. Turn on a radio to monitor for important safety information and be prepared for any aftershock.

So before the ground moves, get prepared, make a plan, practice what you know.
