Unlike other emergencies, procedures dealing with an earthquake are less specific. Since earthquake magnitude cannot be predetermined, everyone must initiate emergency precautions within seconds after the initial tremor is felt; assuming the worst case. The best earthquake instructions are to take precautions before the earthquake [e.g. secure or remove objects above you that could fall during an earthquake].
For your convenience, Campus Safety and our insurance company Lockton have prepared a quick tip sheet for earthquake precautions as well as what to do should an earthquake happen while on campus.
