Jakarta – The hotel has an “Earthquake procedure” leaflet in the drawer?

27 10 2009

In most of the hotels I’ve stayed in, there is always the standard “What to do in a fire” leaflet, write ups about the hotel, the coffee house menu, some writing paper and the occasional Gideon’s Bible.

In Jakarta, they had this :

P1060169

rather scary. I’d say!

decided that since I knew NOTHING about what to do during an earthquake, I’d better do some reading!

Erm, the fact that the hotel was built with every consideration given to earthquake safety” was mildly reassuring :p

P1060161

REMAIN CALM – sure….. I think I can handle that 

P1060162

Cartoons to make reading more enjoyable 😀

P1060163

I looked around and the only place I could possibly avoid all the things on this list is the 6 inches of space underneath the ceiling beam ………

P1060164

……….. IF I still had my senses with me to do that

P1060165

Note item 2 : DO NOT RUSH OUTSIDE, STAY ON THE SAME FLOOR THAT YOU ARE ON, UNTIL THE NOISE STOPS. My first instinct would be ……. RUNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!! 

I really don’t think I’d stay on the 16th floor of a swaying building, although this IS the PROFESSIONAL advice given!

What if the whole building collapses before the earthquake is over? On the other hand, the building might topple over me when I’m outside, running away from it. Gulp!

P1060168

What would you do? Follow these instructions or your instincts?
