Many times small earthquake happening in our country. And Earth quake is one of the dangerous natural disasters that people can’t predict anything when it is come.
So we have to be preparing all the time for facing it.
The most important thing to do is to protect you from falling things. “Most earthquake-related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects. “Ground movement during an earthquake is seldom the direct cause of death or injury.” If you are in bed, stay there but cover your face and head with a pillow. Get away from glass, windows, light fixtures, china cabinets, wall hangings, bookcases-anything that could fall and crash over you. If possible, get cover under a sturdy table that could protect you from falling objects. If you are in a high floor of an apartment building, do not rush to leave the building. “Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave. Absolutely do not get into an elevator. Turn off the kitchen stove, and don’t use matches or candles. The gas line could have been broken and there could be a fire hazard. If you are outdoors, get away from buildings, electricity and other wires. Try and get cover to protect yourself from falling debris. If you are in a car, stop and stay inside the vehicle. Again, avoid being near buildings, trees, or other possible falling objects.
