- Drop: Running or moving while the ground is shaking isn't the best idea. The best course of action is to drop directly to the ground, not try to run to safety.
- Cover: Get under a sturdy table or desk. The surface above you will protect you from falling debris, one of the most dangerous aspects of an earthquake.
- Hold On: Hold on to a sturdy object to help you stay in one place while the ground is shaking, and don't move until you are sure that the shaking has stopped.
