WHAT TO DO INDOORS?
Take cover under a sturdy desk, table or bench, or next to wall, and hold on. If you cannot find a table or desk, cover your face and head with your arms, and crouch in the corner.
Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that can fall.
If you’re in bed, stay there, and protect your head with a pillow. If you are under a heavy light fixture that could fall, move to the nearest safe place.
Use a doorway for shelter only if it is close to you and if you are certain it is a strongly supported, load-bearing doorway.
Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside.
WHAT TO DO OUTDOORS?
Stay outside and move away from buildings, streetlights and utility wires.
If you are trapped under debris, do not light a match; do not move or kick up dust.
Cover your mouth with a handkerchief or clothing.
Tap on a pipe, if there is one nearby, to alert rescuers to your location. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort.
