Once you have met your and your family's immediate needs after an earthquake, continue to follow the plan you prepared in advance (see Step 2).
Use the information you put together in your disaster plan and the supplies you organized in your disaster kits. If your gas was turned off, you will need to arrange for the gas company to turn it back on. If the electricity went off and then came back on, check your appliances and electronic equipment for damage.

Sleeping bags and flashlights may be quite handy in the days or weeks after a major earthquake.
If your home is structurally unsafe or threatened by a fire or other hazard, you need to evacuate. Once you have recovered from the earthquake, go back to Step 1 and do the things you did not do before, or do them more thoroughly.
However, shelters may be overcrowded and initially lack basic services, so do not leave home just because utilities are out of service or your home and its contents have suffered moderate damage.

Learn from what happened during the earthquake so you will be safer and recover more quickly next time.
