Check out SFU's Emergency & Continuity Planning website for a variety of earthquake and other emergency situation tips and resources.

Transportation-Oriented Earthquake Tips:

If you are outside:

  • Stay Outside
  • Go to an open area away from buildings, glass and power lines
  • Do not enter any buildings until they have been approved for re-entry

In Transit:

  • If you are inside your car, pull over.  Avoid overhead structures such as bridges and overpasses.  Set the parking brake and stay inside the car.
  • If you are on the bus, stay seated until the bus stops then Drop, Cover and Hold until the Shaking Stops. Stay inside if it is safe to do so.
