Earthquakes happen without warning. The best way to protect yourself is to immediately “drop, cover, and hold on.”

  1. DROP - Drop to the ground (before the earthquake knocks you down)
  2. COVER - Take cover, by getting under a secured desk or table
  3. HOLD ON - Grab the legs of the desk or table, and hold on until the shaking stops
