– If you’ve been told to evacuate, put on a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, and your mask and goggles before you leave. If you wear contacts, it’s best to leave them at home. As you evacuate, avoid downhill areas as that’s where the lava and ash will fall.
– If there’s no way for you to evacuate, it’s time to turn your home into a fortress. Cover your windows with plywood. Trim any tall trees that are close to your house so they don’t fall over onto your home.
– If the water rises quickly, get to the roof of your house, and call for help. If you have the chance, make sure you turn off the circuit breakers in your home to avoid electrocution.
– A blizzard is a very severe snowstorm. If you’re at home, stay inside. Close the internal doors to preserve heat, and stuff towels or rags in the cracks of windows. It’s a great idea to have an emergency heating source in case the power goes out.
– If you’re out in a forest and the wildfire is all around you, the wind can guide you. If the wind and the fire are blowing toward you, it’s time to move in a direction perpendicular to the fire because the fire will be headed in your direction next.
– For people who live in areas prone to tornadoes, the best idea is to plan ahead. If you’re one of them, make sure there’s a room or shelter close to your house that you can use in that event. Practice drills to your shelter with your family at least once a year.
