Secure heavy furniture and appliances on wall areas and refrain from putting large breakable ornaments on high places. This is because glass materials can cause serious injuries that require immediate medical attention. Also, always keep the floor area clean and free from clutter so that trip-over injuries will be prevented.

An emergency kit that contains water, food products, batteries, communication equipment, and first aid supplies, among others should always be kept home. Getting a hold of the said kit in the occurrence of an earthquake is important because electricity may be shut and sewerage services may be obstructed. Having a camping stove is also essential because it can be used in food preparation and heat production.

Individuals who are outdoors should try to reach a secure area that is free from tall establishments that may cause falling debris. In such cases, those who are involved should try to maintain their composure and think clearly.

As soon as the earthquake is over, the first priority should be to re-locate friends and family members to a safer location. As such, it would be best to have a bug out location if one’s home is seriously damaged. If this is not possible, the next best thing would be to head to a public facility that offers assistance in times of natural disaster.

Professional survivalists agree that they key to enduring earthquakes and other devastating natural disasters is being prepared. For this reason, having an earthquake survival guide is essential for those who want to make sure that their friends and loved ones remain safe. Putting the aforementioned factors into consideration, the benefits of being armed with the proper knowledge should not be neglected.


In the end, unpreparedness should not be avoided at all cost since knowing what to do can help reduce stress and improve the chances of survival when an earthquake strikes.
