This is an announcement from Kawasaki City Government as to ‘How to cope with the breakout of an earthquake’.
In case of an earthquake you are advised to act as follows:
At the moment of shaking you should keep your head and secure your safety;
You should go where nothing will fall on your head or hide yourself under the table;
You should open the window or door as an emergency exit;
You should fasten down furniture and put nothing on your head lest you should be injured and the exit should be blocked;
You should put out a fire as soon as a shaking stops. A large number of people are killed in the fire caused by a big earthquake.
For coping with expected aftershocks properly it is important to discuss with your family how to act in case of disaster. When a big disaster occurs, it is very difficult for the public sector to give immediate support to the victims. You are advised to store food provisions for at least three days for an emergency.
