How To Prevent Fire After an Earthquake


Following an earthquake, gas leaks are a major cause of fires. Everyone in the family should know where the gas meter is and how to shut it off in an emergency. So here are simple tips to keep you and your family safe.

What you should do after an earthquake

You should:
– Check on injuries
– Evacuate

Safety Tip!: At night time, use light sticks instead of candles and store the wrench by the meter.

Make sure you get your family safe and prepared by having a “Family Earthquake Survival Kit” for earthquake preparedness for the family and know how to use it.
