Tips Save Yourself From an Earthquake

Then power it is the foundation of our lives, if the object that hit the table is still capable of being held by the table that we would survive. However, if the table would not hold then we will split asunder beneath it, a lot of cases these deaths occurred as falling debris.

What is it called “triangle of life”? Triangles it is just a term as the safest place for an emergency shelter us during an earthquake, is based on facts, experience and analysis of several people who survived the earthquake. It houses / buildings earthquake resistant can save people inside but when the earthquake on the ability of the home / building is anti earthquake is the most strategic way to find the nearest triangle of life.

Where the position of these triangles? There are many … one of which is on the side of a large object, at the fork in the walls of houses / buildings and others.


As we know the triangle or corner of the house / building we are containing a pole / metal that is strong enough to withstand the horizontal fracture, is a very strategic place to shelter from the ruins of a wall or roof. Moreover triangles we can meet on that side of the object, the object is not in the picture above … I’m describing the side of a cabinet which is a strategic place to shelter from the ruins of the building roof.

Triangles do not guarantee we will be safe, but when the earthquake struck the triangle position could save the lives of our life even though leave an empty space which is quite narrow, with the triangle of life is likely to survive our comparison was 70% versus 30%.

Here are 10 tips to protect yourself during earthquake by Doug Copp:

    Almost everyone who simply ducks and covers when buildings collapse, died from falling debris. The people who took shelter under an object will compress its body.
Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up position. We should too in an earthquake. This is a natural instinct to save himself. We can survive in the narrow room. Get next to an object, next to the sofa, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.
Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction during the earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building was still falling, many voids are formed. In addition, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. The building of the brick will be crushed to pieces. Brick fragments will result in bodily injury but few bodies than concrete slabs crushed.
If we were in bed when an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotel will have a high safety level, simply by posting in the back door so the guests lying on the floor beside the bed during an earthquake.
If an earthquake happens and we can not get out the door or window, then lie down and curl up next to a sofa or large chair.
Almost everyone who is behind the door when the building collapsed to die. Why? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above it. If the door jam falls sideways you will be crushed and split in two by it. In both cases, it is likely to be killed!
Never run through the steps. Stairs has a “moment of frequency” different (they swing separately from the main building). Appliances and other parts of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs. The people who get on stairs before they collapse would cut him into pieces. Even if the building does not collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a part of the building to be damaged. Even if the earthquake did not tear down the ladder, the ladder may collapse later when people were fleeing. Fixed ladder must be examined even when the rest of the building is not damaged.
Get Near the Outer Walls Of Buildings Or Outside Of Them If possible. Would be safer to be outside of the building rather than in it. The farther we are from the exterior of the building, it will more likely escape route closed.
People who are in their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls and crushes their vehicles which is exactly what happened on floors Nimitz freeway. Victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They may be able to survive if out of the vehicle and lay down next to their vehicles. All the crushed cars had voids as high as 1 meter next to it, except a vehicle that had columns fall directly motorway.
Doug discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.
