Earthquake

If indoors, seek refuge in a doorway or under a desk or table.  Stay away from glass windows, shelves, and heavy equipment.  Stay under cover until shaking as stopped, then be prepared to calmly evacuate the building.

If outdoors, move quickly away from buildings, power lines, utility poles, and other structures. Always avoid power or utility lines to avoid electrocution.

If in a vehicle, stop in the safest place available, preferably an open area away from power lines, utility poles, and trees.  Stop as quickly as safety permits, but stay in the vehicle for the shelter it offers.

Protect yourself at all times and be prepared for aftershocks.
