Earthquake Emergency Procedures
Make your room earthquake-safe by following these simple steps:
Ensure that nothing heavy or breakable is stored high up in the room.
Locate safe spots and danger spots in your room. Safe spots include: under a table or desk, or near an interior wall away from shelves and windows. Danger spots include: near windows, glass doors, mirrors, hanging objects, and tall unsecured furniture.
Become familiar with alternate exit routes in the building and with the emergency assembly point outside the building. Keep all exit routes clear and unblocked.
During An Earthquake
Remain calm. Do not rush outside. Many earthquake injuries occur due to falling debris just outside doorways or near outside walls.
If you are indoors, drop, cover and hold on under a sturdy table or desk.
If there is no shelter spot, crouch near an interior wall away from windows, large furniture and light fixtures. You do not need to stand in a doorway. Doorways offer no greater protection than any other area.
If you are outdoors, move away from buildings, utility wires, trees and other overhead hazards. Stay in an open area.
If you are driving, pull carefully to the side of the road and stop. Stay inside your car until the shaking stops and only resume driving if it is safe to do so.
If you are in a classroom or auditorium, drop, cover and hold under the desk or down between the row of seats well below the top part of the seats. The top of the seats will serve to break the fall of any debris that may come loose from the ceiling. Do not rush for the exit or attempt to leave the building, since heavy objects may be falling in your path.
After An Earthquake
Evacuate the building until it has been assessed for damage. Follow these appropriate evacuation procedures:
- Turn off all electrical equipment.
- Bring emergency supplies, warm clothing and purses/wallets with you.
- Do not leave anyone behind; assist those with disabilities.
- Close all doors behind you.
- Use the stairs, not the elevators.
- Assemble in a safe outdoor area.
Do not re-enter the building until it has been assessed by inspectors. Cooperate with emergency response teams.
Listen to radios for emergency information.
Be prepared for aftershocks.
Wear sturdy shoes to avoid injury from broken glass.
Do not use the elevators.
Do not use telephones except in a serious emergency.
Assist others in the area.
Report injuries or damages to the nearest emergency response team.
Residents are informed of proper emergency procedures when they check into the Residence Halls. Emergency telephone numbers are posted around the halls and are distributed to each resident student.
Typhoon Warnings and Signals are announced and/or posted online and around the Residence Halls. The RH Office will post flyers on doorways and entry doors to inform residents of weather conditions.
