Before an Earthquake
The following are things you can do to protect yourself, your family and your property, in the event of an earthquake.

  1. To begin preparing, you should build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan.Fasten shelves securely to walls.
  2. Place large or heavy objects on lower shelves.
  3. Store breakable items such as bottled foods, glass, and china in low, closed cabinets with latches.
  4. Fasten heavy items such as pictures and mirrors securely to walls and away from beds, couches and anywhere people sit.
  5. Brace overhead light fixtures and top heavy objects.
  6. Repair defective electrical wiring and leaky gas connections. These are potential fire risks. Get appropriate professional help. Do not work with gas or electrical lines yourself.
  7. Install flexible pipe fittings to avoid gas or water leaks. Flexible fittings are more resistant to breakage.
  8. Secure your water heater, refrigerator, furnace and gas appliances by strapping them to the wall studs and bolting to the floor. If recommended by your gas company, have an automatic gas shut-off valve installed that is triggered by strong vibrations.
  9. Repair any deep cracks in ceilings or foundations. Get expert advice if there are signs of structural defects.
  10. Be sure the residence is firmly anchored to its foundation.
  11. Store weed killers, pesticides, and flammable products securely in closed cabinets with latches and on bottom shelves.
  12. Locate safe spots in each room under a sturdy table or against an inside wall.
  13. Reinforce this information by moving to these places during each drill.
  14. Hold earthquake drills with your family members: Drop, Cover and Hold On.

Know the Terms. Familiarize yourself with these terms to help identify an earthquake hazard:

  • Aftershock– An earthquake of similar or lesser intensity that follows the main earthquake.
  • Earthquake– A sudden slipping or movement of a portion of the earth’s crust, accompanied and followed by a series of vibrations.
  • Epicenter– The place on the earth’s surface directly above the point on the fault where the earthquake rupture began. Once fault slippage begins, it expands along the fault during the earthquake and can extend hundreds of miles before stopping.
  • Fault– The fracture across which displacement has occurred during an earthquake. The slippage may range from less than an inch to more than 10 yards in a severe earthquake.
  • Magnitude– The amount of energy released during an earthquake, which is computed from the amplitude of the seismic waves. A magnitude of 7.0 on the Richter Scale indicates an extremely strong earthquake. Each whole number on the scale represents an increase of about 30 times more energy released than the previous whole number represents. Therefore, an earthquake measuring 6.0 is about 30 times more powerful than one measuring 5.0.
  • Seismic Waves– Vibrations that travel outward from the earthquake fault at speeds of several miles per second. Although fault slippage directly under a structure can cause considerable damage, the vibrations of seismic waves cause most of the destruction during earthquakes.
