In case of a major earthquake there are certain steps you can take that may keep you safer.

The best place to be in case of an earthquake is outside in an open area.


If you are inside a building:

1) Go to the bomb shelter and the leave the door open.
2) If there’s no bomb shelter, go inside a stairwell, and if possible, get to the ground floor.
3) If no other options are available, take cover under a heavy piece of furniture, or sit on the floor, next to an inside wall.
