If you live or work in the evacuation zones you need to:
Have a plan and know where you are going to evacuate to as soon as the shaking stops. Have an emergency bag ready and accessible at all times that holds essential items including water, spare medication, lightweight snacks and petfood. You need to be able to carry it on foot. Know where your shoes and torch are, especially at night when you are likely to be disoriented if woken by an earthquake.
