It is a fact that tremors can not be predicted, so citizens must be ready and have an emergency plan in the event of an earthquake. Where to start? To be ready, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes three basic steps:
2. Non-perishable food, utensils to eat and can opener. Energy bars and canned rations are good examples. Write the expiration date on your calendar, to consume it and replace it before it is damaged.
3. Portable battery or crank radio. It is ideal that you have NOAA weather emergency frequencies with tone alert. Extra batteries for the equipment.
4. Flashlight and extra batteries. The LED lights are more compact and efficient. Headlights can also be used.
5. First aid kit and prescription medication, if applicable.
6. Plastic whistle to alert and ask for help.
7. Dust masks, plastic garbage bags and duct tape to filter contaminated air.
8. Hygiene equipment: Wet wipes, disinfectant gel (sanitizer), sanitary pads and tampons, garbage bags and plastic moorings for human waste in case there are no sanitary services available.
9. Spanner or pliers to close the stopcocks and the gas cylinder.
10. Permanent marker and paper to leave messages.
11. Cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger
12. Closed shoes (can be tennis) and at least 1 change of clothes for each person.
13. Glasses, saline solution for contact lenses, if applicable.
14. Copies of IDs and insurance policies in a ziplock bag or waterproof container.
