Top 5 Tips for Earthquake Safety

Stay in the Car

If you're driving during an earthquake, slow down and then stop as soon as you can find a safe place. This means away from any potentially unstable areas, like underpasses, bridges, ramps, power lines, large buildings and trees. Stay in the car, no matter how tempting it might be to run. Engage the parking brake, turn on your flashers and turn off the ignition. Once you're sure the immediate danger has passed, go ahead and drive away, but be careful to avoid underpasses, bridges and ramps.
