What should you do in the event of an earthquake?

What should you do in the event of an earthquake?

Here are some tips to follow in the case of an intense earthquake…

Four words: Drop. Cover. Hold on. 

Drop onto your hands and knees before the earthquake knocks you down. This will allow you to move whilst staying safe. 

Cover your head and neck underneath a sturdy desk, near an interior wall or next to low-lying furniture which won’t fall on you. Cover your head and neck.

Hold onto your shelter until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with the shelter if it moves. 

If you are inside, stay inside. You are less likely to be injured if you stay where you are. 

If you can, move away from glass, hanging objects, bookcases and other large furniture which could fall. Watch for falling bricks, light fixture and cabinets with doors which can swing open. 

If you are in the kitchen, quickly turn off the stove and take cover at the first sign of shaking. If you are in bed, hold on and stay there whilst protecting your head with a pillow. 

If you are outside, stay outside. Move away from buildings, utility wires, sinkholes and fuel and gas lines. The area near the outside walls of a building is the most dangerous place to be. 

If you are in a moving vehicle, stop as quickly and safely as possible. Set the parking brake and listen to broadcast information. 

Do not use the elevators as electricity may go out. If you are trapped, stay calm. Try to get someone’s attention by tapping on hard or metallic parts of the structure. 

If you are in a crowded place, drop, cover and hold on. Do not run for the doorways as others will do so.

4500 items given new lease to life through local Reuse Centres

WasteServ revealed that, as of today, the four Reuse Centres in Malta gave new lease of life to around 4500 times which would have otherwise gone to a landfill. 

The centres offer used and ‘pre-loved’ items that still hold value and can be reused. These are also places wherein one can pick up a bargain or donate unwanted items which are still in good condition in special containers placed at every Civic Amenity Site. 

By donating or picking up reused items, people can stop them from going to the landfill, save the energy needed to recycle them, reduce the natural resources and energy used to create new products and contribute to a circular economy. 

The Reuse Centres are located within the Civic Amenity Sites of Luqa, Ħal Far, Mrieħel and Tal-Kus in Xewkija (Gozo).

‘Whether it’s loose furniture, toys, musical instruments, ceramics, textiles, pet cages or mirrors, our Reuse Centres are packed full of unwanted treasures waiting for a new home!’
