Create a family emergency plan
Understand the building where you live. Was it built using anti-seismic techniques?
Request documents and information from the builder or manager to understand what risks you are taking by living there.
Where are the gas, water, and electrical lines?
Make sure they are revised regularly and that the entire family knows how to turn them off.
Where is the fire extinguisher in your home?
Learn how to use it and make sure it is revised annually.
Outside your home:
Decide on an alternative point of contact and meeting place if you are not together during the quake.
