Step 6: Check It Out

Friday, April 20, 2012
After an earthquake, you need to check for injuries and damage.  If possible, get some first-aid training in advance so that you are prepared to help in an emergency.  Even better, take a CERT class and volunteer with your city's emergency response team! 

Remember, after an earthquake or other natural disaster, check yourself, your family and your home FIRST.  Make sure you and your family and home are safe, and then you can volunteer to help neighbors and your community response teams.

Here is the Check It Out focus sheet.
