This earthquake protection measures guide is intended for people with disabilities, and more specifically to people with cognitive impairments, blindness, deafness and mobility impairments. It is divided into two sections: (i) learning about earthquakes, and (ii) protection measures (before, during and after the earthquake).
The first section includes general information about earthquakes and presents the basic characteristics of this natural phenomenon, along with the manner in which the environment around us changes after a destructive earthquake.
The second section refers to protection measures, which are classified into measures taken before, during and after an earthquake. Even though self-protection guidelines are in general lines common for all, there are certain diversities mentioned for people with disabilities. Whenever a guideline is differentiated, it is pointed out separately along with an indication of the disability it refers to.
