These simple steps can save your life in the event of a major earthquake. To ensure you know what to do, it's vital that you practice. If you don't, it's likely that impulse will rule the day, and you'll be running for the exits, with bits of building falling all around you.

Don't be a statistic. Stay where you are, drop to the ground (hopefully under a table, chair, or other protective object), and hold on to whatever object you're under. If you aren't near something you can get under, drop to the ground and cover your head with your arms.
