In all the coverage, did you ever see what the Home Front Command tells civilians to do DURING an earthquake? It's so simple and quick, yet we haven't heard one word! We should push for public awareness of what each person must do if the biggie comes as I finish this reply. The Home Front Command should take over all stations as in a war and teach DROP, COVER, AND HOLD in 5 languages. Because even in a modern building (with standards from 1985), the biggest threat is from flying objects and collapsing interiors. They should initiate a national drill, as they do for going to shelters. There hasn't been a moment of training for the public on how to be safe in the next 10 minutes, let alone 10 years. It's simple, tested, and proven. By the way, disregard the misinformation given in a PowerPoint presentation again circulating in email by the self-proclaimed "expert," Doug Copp! Some of the real experts are suing him. To address his claims, I point to the American Red Cross statement, a letter from the Community Emergency Response Team of Los Angeles, the Albuquerque Journal, or Snopes Rumor Website about his irresponsible conclusions and instructions. The instructions that we use in my place of work are derived from those of the  Home Front Command of the IDF (פיקוד העורף),  the United States Geological Survey (USGS),  the American Red Cross, the  Earthquake Country Alliance, or  FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) of the US Government. Don't wait for your building owner to retrofit in a couple of months or years!
