Being in the middle of Hurricane season and now finding out about a couple reported Earthquakes happening it is important to take the time to be sure you are properly insured.
In our previous post we have informed our readers about Hurricane preparation! Below you will find helpful tips on Earthquake preparation.
The first thing that is recommended in an Earthquake is the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” method! This consists of dropping under a sturdy strong desk or table, hold on and protect your eyes by pressing your face against your arm. If there is no table or desk nearby it is recommended to sit on the floor against an interior wall away from windows, bookcases or tall furniture that could fall on you. Your greatest danger is not from a building collapse, it is from falling items, debris and broken glass. If you have children it is recommended to practice this method with them.
The second recommended preparation is to have a Emergency Plan with your family members. Have a place to meet in case of a disaster and communications is down! A safe zone predetermined that everyone is aware of!
The Third recommended preparation tip is the 72 Hour Kit! Each family member should have a “grab & go” bag in a easy access centralized closet in case you need to leave your home. This should contain basic non-perishable foods, water, personal hygiene items, flashlights, battery operated radio, first aid kit, over the counter medications and if possible prescription medication to last at least a minimum of 72 hours. 72 hours is the estimated time for an effective emergency relief effort from outside your area to be organized. Until that time you must depend on local resources that have survived the event and on your own resources and preparation.
The last recommendation is to make sure you have the proper insurance coverage to protect your home in Mexico in the event of a catastrophic occurrence.
