What we need to do to minimize the actions of a slide:

• Do not build on land that has not been studied and without planning permission from the municipality.
• Plant as many trees as possible in slippery areas.
• Do not allow waste to be thrown into the surface water drainage channels because their blockage causes water to flow onto the ground, eroding the soil.
• Never cut trees because they increase soil stability and prevent landslides.

What to do when there is a slide if you are in an open place:

• Stay away from buildings, trees, telephone or power lines because they can fall and hurt you.
• Never cross a road where a landslide has just occurred because the materials are unstable and can be moved again.
• Do not stand or take action on the lower part of the slide because its materials, although they may seem stable to us, may hide dangers.
• Do not enter dwellings that have been assessed as dangerous by experts, because they may have suffered damage and may collapse.
• Do not drive on slippery roads because they are a source of accidents and endanger your life.

What to do if faced with a slide:

If you are inside a building:
• Do not go outside, but stay where you are because inside the building you are more protected.
• Get under a table, or under supporting columns because you can protect yourself from objects falling from above.
• Stay away from windows or glass doors because they can be damaged by falling.
• Do not use the elevator, as it may get blocked and you may remain inside it.
• Ask the principals of your children’s school to familiarize themselves with the Emergency and Evacuation Plan, so that your children know the routes of movement in the event of an emergency.
