Breakable items should be stored in low, closed cabinets with a latch.

Brace overhead light fixtures and top-heavy lamps.
Have defective electrical wiring and leaky gas connections repaired by a qualified professional.
Secure water heater, refrigerator, furnace and gas appliances with strapping or bolting. If recommended by your gas company, have an automatic vibration shut-off valve installed.
Keep cracks in ceiling or foundation repaired and check often for structural defects.
Store weed killers, pesticides, and flammable products on bottom shelves in closed cabinets with a latch.
