On the first night of your class trip to Disneyland, an earthquake hits. You should get outside immediately in case the building collapses.
Stay inside and move away from windows. If you’re in bed, cover your head with a pillow and stay there. If you’re near a doorway, brace yourself in it. If you can hide underneath something heavy, like a desk, do it.
On the radio you hear there’s a flood coming in your town. While you can see water outside, it isn’t up to your door yet. Is it necessary for you to get out of the house and up to higher ground?
If you wait until the water is in your house, it could be deeper outside — which will leave you trapped. In that case, retreat to the second floor or roof and wait for rescuers.
It’s OK to cross a road that’s covered by more than 6 inches of water.
Most deaths in floods are caused by people crossing submerged areas. Believe it or not, 6 inches of water is enough to sweep a person off their feet. A foot of water is enough to move small cars.
The safest place to be in your house during a tornado is the lowest floor.
If there’s a tornado coming, go to the lowest floor in your home. The basement or storm cellar is best if you have one.
If you’re caught outside in a blizzard, stay as still as possible until help arrives.
To keep your body temperature up, do some form of exercise. You’ll also want to do something to attract the attention of rescuers — like building a fire or opening the hood of your car once the snow has stopped falling.
You’re home alone, and suddenly there’s a big thunderstorm right near your house. First thing you should do: Call your parents to let them know you’re safe.
Never use the phone during an electrical storm. If the phone lines are struck by lightning it could easily travel through the phone lines and hit you.
still can’t mess with it.
Question 6, you should only call your parents if it’s a wireless phone. They didn’t say anything about a landline phone.
it may be true but still can’t mess with it.
I got 100% on the first try. Maybe this test should be edited, so that it’s more difficult.
I love how were on a trip to Disneyland
Advisory Class = 5/6 correct answers. Very active conversations on “what if”! Enjoyed. We really know the most about flash flooding 🙂
