Our First Earthquake Drill: A reminder ...

DROP to the ground;

Take COVER by getting under your desk or other piece of furniture; and

HOLD ON until the drill has concluded. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch against an interior wall.

Stay away from glass, windows, outside doors and walls, and anything that could fall, such as lighting fixtures or furniture.

Stay inside until the drill has concluded. Research has shown that most injuries occur when people inside buildings attempt to move to a different location inside the building or try to leave. Many people are injured at entrances of buildings by falling debris

DO NOT use the elevators.
