Earthquake Safety

About 2,000 tremors occur on a daily basis in the central United States, underscoring the need for all Hoosiers to know earthquake safety and how they can be prepared for quakes.

During an earthquake, you should:

  • Drop where you are, onto your hands and knees
  • Cover your head and neck with one arm and hand, while crawling for shelter under a nearby table or desk (sturdy piece of furniture)
  • Hold On to the shelter with the free hand until the earthquake stops

Additional Tips
  • If outside during an earthquake, stay outside and move away from power lines, tall buildings, rocky areas or other structures or locations that could collapse.
  • If in a vehicle during an earthquake, drive slowly to a location away from buildings, bridges and utility wires.
