What to do before

You need to know the environment where you live, work or spend a significant amount of time in order to better react in case of emergency:

• Ask local authorities of civil protection for a Plan, areas at risk, get informed on evacuation times and escape routes, and follow signs to designated waiting areas to be reached in case of emergency
• Obtain safety information about your own house and the surrounding area
• Make sure that your school or workplace has an evacuation plan and that periodical simulation exercises are carried out
• Be prepared for the emergency with your family and plan how to reach escape routes and waiting areas
• Keep a first aid kit and supplies of water and food at home
• Learn how to behave correctly during and after a tsunami
