Another thing to worry about

23 September 2018

Reporte Indigo:

Recalling the 19 September earthquakes of 1985 and 2018, the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) has issued a warning to those who sleep in their underwear,

In a public service message, IMSS warns us that seismic alarms only give citizens 50 seconds of warning, “so you should not waste time on your clothing selections”.

The IMSS message notes you should evacuate in the clothes you have on, but that that it’s best to have something “comfortable to cover the whole body to keep you warm and avoid injuries”.

“If you sleep in your underwear or with little clothes, have a comfortable robe on hand if you want to cover your body and do not forget your emergency backpack”.

As to footwear, the PSA suggests opting for something that will allow you to “move without risk of tripping or sliding (closed, comfortable, easy to put on and with thick soles)”.

It was suggested to avoid the use of slippers and flip-flops, since these do not hold well to the body, “if it is within reach, use them and do not delay the evacuation”.

And if you’re in the shower? 50 seconds… I’ll go nekked!
