Earthquake Safety Tips



  • Earthquake preparedness within your home includes fastening large appliances such as tall shelves and china hutches to walls.
  • Make sure that shelves above beds do not have any heavy items on them that can fall on you during an earthquake.
  • Hot water heaters should have an earthquake strap around them and secured to the wall.
  • Have a Family Survival Kit which contains food and water, an emergency flashlight and portable radio, first aid kit, waterproof matches, emergency blankets, extra cash and any essential medicines.

  • Talk ahead of time with your family about safe places to go during an earthquake. 
  • These include under a strong, sturdy desk or table, against an inside wall or out in the wide open.
  • If there has been a substantial earthquake you should know how to turn off your gas.  You only have to turn the valve 90 degrees.  Have a gas shutoff tool available. A crescent wrench will do.


  • Stay away from electrical or telephone wires, under overpasses and away from glasses that can shatter such as windows, glass doors, mirrors, pictures, etc.
  • Teach your children how to call 911 in case of an emergency and you are not able to call.
  • Listen to local news on your radio for emergency instructions.
  • If your family is not together during an earthquake have an alternate, long distance, phone number of a relative for each of you to contact.  Many times it is easier to call a long distance number versus a local number after an earthquake.
