Our school held an Earthquake Drill this afternoon directed by our principal Mr. Balletta. Students and staff regularly practice their earthquake drills to prepare before an earthquake occurs.
Here are some GUIDELINES for staying safe: (information taken from the book: "Earthquake Alert!" by author Shilpa Mehta-Jones pg. 25)
* "Stay calm. If you are inside, stay inside. Go to a safe spot in a doorway, under a desk, or on the inside corner of the house. Stay away from windows or glass doors".
* "If on the road (parents and grandparents), drive away from bridges, stop in a safe area, and stay in the vehicle".
PS. Come to the library and check out our books to learn more about Earthquakes ;)
