Before the Earthquake
Non-structural hazards such as unsecured bookcases, large hanging plants, etc., must be identified and effort must be made to correct potentially dangerous situations. In some cases, this may not be feasible. For this reason, awareness of the existence of these problems is of the utmost importance. Be Prepared to remain in the building for 5-7 days. It is strongly recommended that all tenants maintain an adequate amount of emergency supplies. This should include:
Water, Food, First Aid Supplies, AM/FM Radio, Gloves, Flashlights, Dust Masks, Goggles, Fire extinguishers, Hard hats, Sanitary supplies, Blankets, Prescription medication (if required).
