My personal earthquake bag will contain
personal washing things
food and sweets
The bag will contain
a bottle of water
We decide to take bottles of water and some fruit to keep alive; we will take a torchlight, a mobile phone and a radio to get in touch with the outside world, if we are buried in the ruins; we will take some clothes and a blanket to keep warm; and we will take our identity cards with us, In case we are killed. If that happens. people can at least know who we are.
Talk with your classmates and consider what you
have learned about quakes.
