Singapore may be sheltered from devastating impacts of massive quakes, but in the wake of Sunday's tsunamis triggering fears of more aftershocks, the Singapore Civil Defence Force has issued some advice on what you should do when a tremor occurs.
• If you are indoors, do not rush for the exit as it may start a stampede; instead, take cover under the table or against interior walls.
• Stay away from windows, shelves or fixtures that could fall and hurt you.
• Do not use candles, matches or other naked flames as there may be gas leaks.
• If your are outdoors, stay away from buildings and overhead electrical cables; remain in the open until the tremor stops.
• If you are driving, stop quickly and stay in the vehicle. However avoid stopping near or under buildings, trees, bridges, overpasses or electrical cables.
• After the tremor has stopped, do not touch damaged electrical wiring. Report any gas leaks.
• Call the police, if anyone has been injured, then check your home for structural defects and alert the relevant authorities.
