In case of an earthquake follow these instructions:


– It’s important to keep the following objects handy: a battery-operated radio, a flashlight, a first aid kit with basic medical supplies such as acetaminophen, blankets, canned goods, a can opener and bottled water (the food and water must be changed frequently).

What to do during the earthquake?

– Keep calm, stay in previously determined safe areas such as beneath a door frame, a table or a desk.

– Stay away from windows, mirrors and glass objects that could break. Do not lean against walls.

– If you are inside a vehicle calmly keep driving until you reach a safe place, away from bridges, in which you can park safely.

– In public and crowded places refrain from screaming, running or pushing others. Calmly walk out of the place if the exits are not too overcrowded, and if this is not possible, stay in your own seat and place your arms over your head while leaning forward towards your knees.

Once the earthquake is over, if you are trapped inside stay calm and try to make noises with any object that’s available in order to attract attention from the outside. If you are able to, look for any wounded or trapped people. If possible, carry out a detailed inspection of the damages and, if these are severe, refrain from staying inside or making use of the premises.

In addition, do not attempt to light any matches, candles and open-flame or electric devices until you are certain there are no gas escapes or problems with the electric system.

Do not consume any food or drinks that have been near any broken glass, debris, dust or any other pollutants. It is also advisable that you turn on the radio to stay informed on the latest news.

Always pay attention and follow the instructions of the authorities and rescue personnel
