Earthquake

An earthquake is a state in which the earth moves.

Such an event could result in the destruction of buildings, a tsunami, and could lead to casualties

Earthquakes are sudden and therefore must be organized during routine

Early assessments and practice can reduce the risk

In the guide you will find some tips on how to organize for earthquakes and what to do during an earthquake.

The guide is a recommendation only and does not constitute a substitute for instructions from officials

Before the earthquake is recommended:

To know our surroundings and to know in advance what the safe area is - as a principle we prefer to have an earthquake in an open area, but it is also important to know what the area in our house is in case we cannot get out

To make sure that in a place we have determined as a safe place, there will be no heavy objects that can fall

Practice getting to safe areas in advance and discuss this with your children

Prepare emergency equipment in advance that will include:

lantern

Medicines

Cans

Radio with batteries

List with emergency numbers

It is recommended to give a key to the house to a close person

Set a meeting point in case there is an earthquake and you will not be together

When an earthquake is recommended:

Go quickly to an open area without electricity/lighting poles

If there is no possibility then place in the house you have determined that he is safe

If you are driving you have to stop the vehicle on the side of the road and get to a safe place

It is important to provide assistance to those who can not run alone (disabled, elderly and children)

Do not approach the sea before and after an earthquake

Animal assistance should be provided where possible

After an earthquake, the rescue forces' orders must be obeyed, due to the possibility of further earthquakes

We hope you will not need these tips
