· If we are in dangerous areas, water, gas and electricity should be turned off quickly and we should move to a higher level of ground.
· It should be remembered that if a tsunami warning is issued, it may be a matter of minutes or even second before the waves hit.
· We should never go down to the beach to watch the waves come in.
· We have to keep in mind that tsunami consists of a series of waves. Generally, the very first wave may not be much dangerous but they get worse progressively.
· We should listen to the radio to know when it is safer to return home.
· After a tsunami hit, food and water may get contaminated and it is important to test them before consumption.
· We should check the building for any gas leaks or electrical short circuit before entering them.
· First-aid should be administered only if we are trained in it, otherwise we should seek assistance of a trained person.
· We should stay tuned to the local radio and TV stations for any order for evacuation when a tsunami warning has been issued.
· We should never return to the lower areas until the tsunami danger is over and the "all clear" signal has been announced.
