During an earthquake, if you are present in a house, office or a building, get out of there and come out. Then run to the open field. There is no safer place than the open field during an earthquake. Do not stand around any building in case of an earthquake. If you live in a building that has an elevator, do not use the elevator at all. It is advisable to use stairs in such situations.
Keep doors and windows open during an earthquake. Turn off all power switches in the house. If the building is too high and it is not possible to get down immediately, hide a high post or bed in the building under a table. During an earthquake, people need to be careful not to spread rumors.
