19 Earthquake - Inside “Drop, Cover, and Hold On”
DROP down onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from falling but allows you to still move if necessary. COVER your head and neck under a sturdy table or desk. If there is no shelter nearby, only then should you get down near an interior wall (or next to low-lying furniture that won't fall on you), and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands. HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around Turn off your GAS, ELECTRICITY, and WATER, if possible. NEVER turn gas back on yourself, call a professional Keep away from all windows Do not use elevators Resource: January 2015

20 Earthquake - Outside If you’re Outside: Stay Alert after Quake:
Stay away from buildings and power lines. If driving, park in the safest spot and stay low in the car. Keep your seatbelt fastened. Watch for falling debris. Stay Alert after Quake: Aftershocks may occur for several days Stay out of damage areas Listen to local radio/TV for instructions. Do not use open flames in case of gas leaks. January 2015

21 Fires - Have an Escape Plan
Plan Essentials: Determine escape routes from each room in your home / building Choose a meeting place outdoors Hold fire drills regularly Make sure everyone in family knows the plan Check batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide alarms annually Follow the plan: Never use an elevator Stay low when smoke is present (smoke rises) Feel doors before opening If cool and no smoke is seeping inside, open doors, SLOWLY Use another exit if warm or smoke is seeping in Go to designated meeting place and stay there; do not go back inside January 2015

22 Flood and Hurricane RESPONSE: PREPARATION:
Listen to radio/TV for evacuation routes and instructions. Turn off gas, electricity, and water Lock windows and doors. Watch out for washouts, fallen wires, etc. Do not cross flowing water Be prepared for flash flooding PREPARATION: Extra water 1gallon/person for 72-hours Nonperishable food items & mesh kits Portable radio with batteries Flashlight and extra batteries Fill automobile with gas Prepare Emergency Supply Kit (see slide for details) January 2015

23 Severe Storm Safety If outside, get into a building, car or bus
If in open area, head for low ground or crouch down If in wooded area, pick a low area under thick, small trees January 2015

24 Tornado Safety Go to lowest level of the building and stay in the center, away from windows Get under sturdy furniture or stairs Do not stay in mobile or manufactured homes If away from home, take shelter in a steel framed or reinforced-concrete building Avoid buildings with wide-span roofs January 2015

25 Winter Storm Safety Dress in lightweight layers of clothing, rather than one layer of heavy clothing Avoid getting chilled or overheated Beware of ice (including black ice), fallen trees and downed wires Avoid strenuous activity and driving if possible: Have an emergency kit with blankets in car, if you must travel. Never use unvented fuel-burning devices (ex. Grills, ovens, generators, and space heaters). Never use back-up generators indoors. These devices create DEADLY carbon monoxide, which is colorless and odorless! January 2015

26 Nuclear Response Reminders:
Review public alert/broadcasting systems (radio/TV) for instructions Exposure can cause serious illness or death Only use telephone if necessary When evacuating, do not leave car if it breaks down - stay and wait for help. Keep car windows and vents closed Do not return home until officials say it is safe January 2015

27 Chemical Disaster Response
Get inside as soon as possible; if in a vehicle, close windows, vents and turn off air conditioning If in a building/home, go to highest room…if possible, retreat to a windowless room Close all doors and windows; turn off heating / air conditioning systems and fans Follow official instructions on sealing off rooms ( i.e. using plastic sheeting, duct tape, or placing damp towels under doors) Cut and label plastic sheeting now to save time when sealing off window and door edges January 2015

28 Biological Release Response
Stay alert for attack warning signs. Early detection enhances survival.  Move upwind from the source of the attack.  If evacuation from the immediate area is impossible, move indoors (if outside) and upward to an interior room on a higher floor. Remember many agents are heavier than air and will tend to stay close to the ground.  Once indoors, close all windows and exterior doors and shut down air conditioning or heating systems to prevent circulation of air.  Cover your mouth and nose. If gas masks are not available, use a surgical mask or a handkerchief. An improvised mask can be made by soaking a clean cloth in a solution of 1 tablespoon of baking soda in a cup of water. While this is not highly effective, it may provide some protection. Cover bare arms, legs, and any cuts or abrasions are covered/bandaged.  If splashed with an agent, immediately wash it off using copious amounts of warm soapy water or a diluted 10:1 bleach solution.  January 2015
