Practice Drop, Cover and Hold On For Earthquakes
Here’s a trick.
Next time you feel the ground shake, tomorrow, next Tuesday, whenever, even if you THINK it’s just a tiny, normal California tremor, try Drop, Cover and Hold On.
Right there, where you are.
At your office desk, drop beneath it, grab the desk leg, and hold on until the shaking stops.
Oh wait, you’re worried about your boss thinking you’re unproductive under your desk? Don’t worry, just show your boss the SF Quake Quiz, and your boss will be practicing drop, cover, and hold on too.
Maybe if your boss catches you doing this, she’ll think you’re conscientious about something.

Because of the risk of tsunamis, twenty seconds after you Drop, Cover and Hold On at the beach you should move to high ground.
