In each century millions lose their life in deadly earthquake which comes without any warning, but what are the safety precautions through which you can save your life during an earthquake.
The first three things which you should remember during any earthquake are Drop, Cover and Hold On. So if there is an earthquake drop to the ground and take cover under a table, desk or bed and wait until the earthquake ends.
During this process cover your head & face using your arms to protect it from anything which may fall. Make sure that you are away from glass doors, windows and walls.
Never attempt to run and escape when the shaking has not stopped because most of the injuries occur during escape, remain calm until the shaking stops. Now move to a safe location such as outside the house but never use elevators, keep away from electrical wires.
