I agree it is not a fair fight, but we can least give it a try. Combating earthquakes does not mean that you will have the power to overturn it, but it does mean that you have the wit to minimize your losses, at least those that are somewhat in your hands. This book tries to give you a thorough insight into the scenario of the earthquake. We begin by making you realize that your reactions will always vary with your positions and the steps that you have to take will be different in each situation. Evacuation strategies are followed by the analysis of scenarios, and then we introduce you to perhaps the most crucial thing in the moment of panic, organization. Yes, in moments like these you need your mind to calm down and we have done that for you. The lists are all given; all you need to do is to work on them and prearrange all your tools and aids. We end by giving you all the common injuries and their first aid helping mechanisms. I hope that with following these steps you can ensure the safety of your family and be unharmed by this monstrous calamity.
