PERSONAL (RESIDENT) EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS MEASURES
There are several things that a resident can do to prepare for an eventual emergency, including the following:
Preparing Your Home for an EARTHQUAKE
  • Secure major appliances to both the floor and wall
  • Move large objects and breakable items to lower shelves
  • Fasten pictures and mirrors securely to walls
  • Install flexible pipe fittings to minimize breakage of gas and water lines
  • Avoid placing beds and seating areas directly under ceiling fans
