Be aware of how safe the places you spend a lot of time in are, such as your home and your workplace.
Be sure to check the nearest evacuation point and shelter and try to walk there on foot. It might also be useful to walk there when it’s dark at night rather than during daylight because the power may go out during a large earthquake. Ask your neighbors or local governments for the whereabouts of the evacuation points. If you want to know what living in a shelter is like, see the following KIA’s English webpage.
