In preparation for the two-day earthquake drill named "Safety Path 3," Jordan's Public Security Directorate (PSD) has released a set of guidelines for individuals to follow before, during, and after an earthquake.
Before an Earthquake:
- Ensure the secure connections of electricity and gas.
- Store movable items on lower shelves inside the house.
- Keep essential emergency contact numbers readily available.
During an Earthquake:
- Stay calm and avoid panic.
- Turn off energy sources, including electricity and gas.
- Seek shelter near the corners of the building.
- Be prepared to relocate to safer areas.
After an Earthquake:
- Do not impede the evacuation process for the injured; leave it to the relevant authorities.
- Keep a distance from structures that may have been affected by the earthquake.
- Avoid gathering near residential areas and opt for open spaces.
- Remain vigilant for potential aftershocks.
