building exploding icon

Building collapses or explosions can result from structural damage, a gas leak, or sabotage.


  • Get out as quickly and calmly as possible
  • If you can’t get out of the building, go under a sturdy piece of furniture
  • If you are trapped by debris:
    • Cover your nose and mouth with a dry cloth or clothing
    • Move around as little as possible to avoid kicking up dust, which is harmful to inhale
    • If possible, use a flashlight so you can see your surroundings
    • Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can hear where you are. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort
  • If you clean up debris:
    • Wear gloves and sturdy shoes
    • Sort debris by type (wood, appliances, etc.)
    • Do not touch debris that contains utility wires
    • Do not move debris that is too large or heavy. Ask for help from neighbors, friends, and recovery workers
