How can I protect myself if I am elderly?
you are elderly, you need to take some extra precautions before an
earthquake strikes. Plan how to protect yourself in your home or
workplace. Always keep a list of your medications with you. Include
phone numbers for doctors and family members. Keep walking aids next to
you, and have extras elsewhere in your home. It is also a good idea to
put a security light in each room. They will switch on automatically if
you lose power. Keep a whistle nearby to signal for help, and arrange
for someone to check on you after the earthquake is over.
