Earthquake plans ain't nothing to fuck with. Actual safety tips courtesy of ready.gov/earthquakes.
If you're in bed when an earthquake strikes, stay there. Hold on and protect your head with a pillow.
Move away from buildings, streetlights, and utility wires.
Many inside doorways are lightly constructed and do not offer protection.
Drop to the ground and take cover by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture.
Most earthquake-related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass, and falling objects.
DO NOT use the elevators.
Help injured or trapped persons.
If trapped under debris, do not light a match.
If trapped under debris, cover your mouth with a handkerchief or clothing. Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
Look for and extinguish small fires. Fire is the most common hazard after an earthquake.
