During Emergencies Contact  69 51111  

¨      Get under a sturdy table or desk if things are falling around you. When they stop falling, leave quickly, watching for obviously weakened floors and stairways. As you exit from the building, be especially watchful of falling debris.

¨      Leave the building as quickly as possible. Do not stop to retrieve personal possessions or make phone calls.

¨      Do not use elevators.

Once You are Out:

¨      Do not stand in front of windows, glass doors, or other potentially hazardous areas.

¨      Move away from sidewalks or streets to be used by emergency officials or others still exiting the building.

If You are Trapped in Debris:

¨      If possible, use a flashlight to signal your location to rescuers.

¨      Avoid unnecessary movement so you don't kick up dust.

¨      Cover your nose and mouth with anything you have on hand.

¨      Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can hear where you are.

¨      Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause a person to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
