Earthquake Safety Tips
* Those living in areas not prone to earthquakes can respond quickly to the plight of disaster victims in quake zones by complacently smirking and saying, "I told you so."
* To minimize loss and damage in a quake, try not to own things.
* Practice your burrowing-out-from-under-40-tons-of-rubble skills ahead of time.
* Look out your window often. If you see a large, zig-zag-shaped crevasse moving rapidly from the horizon toward your home, step either to the right or the left.
* For those who fear earthquakes, it may comfort you to know that a majority of the damage during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake did not come from the tremors themselves. Instead, it was from the raging, out-of-control fires that consumed most of the city.
* A doorway is the safest place to be during a quake (as long as there is no furniture in the rooms on either side of the doorway). Eat, sleep and work in doorways.
* Be sure to mail your house-insurance payments a full five business days before a major earthquake strikes.
* In the event of a quake, get under something heavy, such as a desk, a table or your uncle.
