Earthquakes are one of the strongest and the most disastrous natural phenomena. We can’t detect them, we can’t avoid them, and yet lots of areas are always on high treat for earthquakes.
We can’t detect an earthquake, but what we can do is that we can learn what to do when the earthquake strikes. This knowledge can save your life in the case of an emergency.
Here are the things that you should never do when the earthquake strikes.
Don’t Be Late With a Proper Plan
With proper knowledge and by planning ahead, you can easily survive an earthquake, or any other natural disaster for that matter. So, never be late on making proper plans and get ready to face the worst the nature has to offer.
Governments around the world usually train their people on how to respond to an earthquake by giving them some survival tips, but the best thing your can do is teaching your family members on how they can respond. Taking good decisions about where we live, how we build our buildings and how we secure everything inside our house is completely under our control.
Not Making a Communication Plan
Before you suffer from the disaster of an earthquake, one thing that you can do to get connected with your family members after an earthquake is making aa communications plan well ahead of time. Include things like emails, names and phone numbers of every individual family member for communication reasons after the earthquake.
Not Securing The Household Items
Bigger and taller household items like bookshelves, dressers, and other furniture items that can easily fall in the case of an earthquake should be moved away from the places where people sit and lie down most of the times. These things can fall on somebody and injure them.
