The annual ShakeOut earthquake drill is being held on October 20, 2016. As a national event to raise awareness of the dangers of earthquakes, this is a perfect opportunity to discuss the perils with your clients. Remind them that the right Los Angeles Earthquake Insurance program can mitigate risk as a result of damage and loss from these natural disasters.
According to Earthquake Country, everyone, everywhere, should know how to protect themselves during earthquakes. Even if earthquakes are rare where you live, they may happen where you or your family travel; the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills are an annual opportunity for people in homes, schools, and organizations to practice what to do during earthquakes, and to improve preparedness.
The proper safety actions can prevent injury and even death during earthquakes. At the ShakeOut event, people will learn how to properly drop, cover, and hold on. According to Earthquake Country, the following actions should be taken:
Drop: Wherever you are, drop to your hands and knees to prevent you from being knocked down and allow yourself to crawl to shelter if it is available.
Cover: Protect your head and neck with one arm and hold onto a sturdy surface such as a table or chair with the other. Remain on your knees to protect your vital organs and stay away from windows.
Hold on: Hold onto shelter or use both arms as a protectant against falling objects.
