[size=18]TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY

1) [b]Most
everyone who simply 'ducks and covers' WHEN BUILDINGS
COLLAPSE
are crushed to death.

People
who get under objects, like desks or cars, are
crushed.

2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position.
You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival
instinct. You can
survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a
sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.

3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an
earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the
earthquake.
If
the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created.
Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. [b]Brick buildings will break into individual bricks.

Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4)
If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply
roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can
achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a
sign on The back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5)
If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out
the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position
next to a sofa, or large chair.

6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed.
How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or
backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jam
falls sideways
you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

7)
Never go to the stairs.
The stairs have a different 'moment of frequency' (they swing separately from the main part of the
building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into
each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place.
The people who get on
stairs before they fall are chopped up by the stair treads - horribly mutilated.
Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are
a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not
collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing
people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the
building is not damaged.


Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of
Them If Possible
It is much better to be near the outside of the
building rather than
the interior. The farther inside you are from the
outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape
route will be blocked.

9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake
and crushes their vehicles
; which is exactly what happened with the
slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway.

The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their
vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out
and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived
if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All
the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that
had columns fall directly across them.

10)
I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and
other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact.Large
voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.
