  • Drop, Cover, Hold on
  • If you are inside, stay inside
  • If you are in a high-rise building, drop, cover, and hold on.
  • If you are inside a crowded place, drop, cover, and hold on.
  • If you are outside, stay outside.
  • If you are in a moving vehicle, stop as quickly and safely as possible.
  • If you are in a stadium or theater, stay in your seat. Protect your head and neck with your arms or any way possible.
  • If you are near the shore, drop, cover, and hold on until the shaking stops.
  • If you cannot drop to the ground, try to sit or remain seated so you are not knocked down.
