Are You Prepared for an Earthquake?

Did you know that Kentucky is located near a major seismic zone known as the New Madrid Seismic Zone? 

If an earthquake should happen....would your family be ready? make sure they are with these earthquake preparedness tips. 

  • If you're indoors when an earthquake begins: drop to your hands and knees. Cover your head and neck with your arms. Crawl under a sturdy table or desk if nearby. Hold on to any sturdy furniture until the shaking stops. If a table or desk is not close, crawl next to an interior wall.
  • Create a family emergency communications plan that has an out-of-state contact.
  • Plan where to meet if you get separated.
  • Make a supply kit that includes enough food and water for at least three days, a flashlight, a fire extinguisher, and a whistle.
  • Consider each person’s specific needs, including medication. Have extra batteries and charging devices for phones and other critical equipment. Do not forget the needs of pets and service animals.
  • Consider obtaining an earthquake insurance policy. A standard homeowner’s insurance policy does not cover earthquake damage.
  • Consider making improvements to your building to fix structural issues that could cause your building to collapse during an earthquake.
