When I went out early this morning to pay my daughter’s tuition fee at school, I spotted this noticed to all the students and so I took a picture of it.
The notice contains when you are indoors, outdoors, in a moving vehicle and if trapped under debris.
I will post the others tomorrow.
- Drop to the ground, take cover by getting under a study table or other piece of furniture and HOLD On until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building.
- Stay away from the glass, windows, outside doors and walls and anything that could fall, such as lighting, fixtures or furniture.
- Stay in bed if you are there when the earthquake strikes. Hold on and protect your head with a pillow, unless you are under a heavy light fixture that could fall. In that case move to the nearest safe place.
- Use a doorway for shelter only if it is in close proximity to you and if you know it is a strongly supported load bearing doorway.
- Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave.
- Be aware that the electricity may turn off or the sprinkler systems or fire alarms may turn on.
- Do not use the elevators.
