After a disaster


What can you do after an earthquake passes?

  • Expect aftershocks.
  • Listen to your local radio station and heed warnings and advice on damage and service disruptions.
  • Turn off electricity and water. Check for broken water, sewerage or electrical mains and report to Council or Ergon Energy.
  • Check for cracks and damage to the roof and evacuate the building if it is badly damaged.
