Earthquake Safety Tips

  • When you feel the earth shake, remember to drop, cover and hold.
  • Do not use electronics, matches or lighters until you are sure there is no gas leak.
  • If you are in a severely damaged building, leave and go to an open space outside.
  • Be alert to dangers that could be hidden by debris, including downed power lines and broken gas pipes.
  • If you hear hissing, smell gas or notice sagging utility lines, stay away and alert your utility.
  • Watch for traffic signals that may be out. Approach those intersections as four-way stops.
  • Use flashlights for lighting during a power outage; do not use candles because they pose a significant fire hazard.
