Earthquake Preparedness Guide

Mar 23, 2011

The above Earthquake Preparedness Guide was sent to our company email from our Human Resources Department and I would like to share this to all of you. In light of the recent events in Japan and the recent 5.4 earthquake in Mindoro, it pays to be prepared at all times. To summarize, here are the things we need to do:
Before an earthquake:
1. Check your homes and offices and familiarize your self with exit areas.
2. Know where first aid kits and fire extinguishers are located.
3. Participate in earthquake drills.
During an earthquake:
1. Stay calm. Panic wont help anybody and will just create more confusion.
2. Duck under sturdy tables, like Dining Room Tables or door archways.
3. Stay away from furnitures that could fall and glass windows.
4. If you are outside, move to open areas. If you are near a body of water, go to higher grounds.
5. If you are inside a car, get out of the vehicle and move to an open area.
After an earthquake:
1. Do not use elevators and use stairwells instead.
2. Check for injuries and damage to your property.
3. Be updated on disasters.

Inside our homes, it also pays to have emergency food kit and medical supplies. We especially need to have water and ready to eat food, transistor with battery, flashlight and a whistle.

Please help spread awareness to prepare us all for disasters and calamities.
