PowerPoint Presentation: EARTHQUAKE Safety guide!!! PowerPoint Presentation: This graph shows that earthquakes are getting bigger and more dangerous. So it is very important to know what to do when one strikes!!! EARTHQUAKE DATA PowerPoint Presentation: Judging from the amount of earthquakes we have had lately I am assuming there will be more... Or at least some aftershocks. So keep watching if you are in an affected area. Or not!!! :D PowerPoint Presentation: DROP to the ground; take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture; and HOLD ON until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building. Step 1 PowerPoint Presentation: Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting fixtures or furniture. Step 2 CRASH! PowerPoint Presentation: Stay inside until shaking stops and it is safe to go outside. 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. Step 3 EVACUATE!!! PowerPoint Presentation: DO NOT use the elevators, even if they are working. There may be aftershocks. Step 4 DO NOT USE!!! PowerPoint Presentation: IF YOU ARE OUTDOORS!!! PowerPoint Presentation: Stay there. Also, move away from buildings, streetlights, and utility wires. Step 5 PowerPoint Presentation: IF YOU ARE DRIVING!!! PowerPoint Presentation: Pull over to the side of the road and stop as quickly as safety permits and stay in the vehicle. Avoid stopping near or under buildings, trees, overpasses, and utility wires. Step 6 PowerPoint Presentation: Step 7 Proceed cautiously once the earthquake has stopped. Avoid roads, bridges, or ramps that might have been damaged by the earthquake. PowerPoint Presentation: Do not light a match. Do not move about or kick up dust. Cover your mouth with a handkerchief or clothing. Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can locate you. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust. If you are trapped under debris!
