Why is it important to do a Drop, Cover, and Hold On drill? To react quickly you must practice often. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake, before strong shaking knocks you down--or drops something on you. Practicing helps you be ready to respond.
If you are inside a building, move no more than a few steps, then Drop, Cover and Hold On
Drop to the ground before the earthquake drops you!
And hold on to it until the shaking stops.
If you turn off your gas, DO NOT turn it back on yourself. Learn the dos and don’ts.
