If its possible, set aside a few minutes to stop what you are doing and plan your course of action this morning. Remember, drop and cover under a desk or sturdy table. Stay away from windows, bookcases, file cabinets, heavy mirrors, hanging plants and other objects that could fall. Hold onto the desk or table. Keep in mind that in the event of a real earthquake, you might not be in your office, so commit these key elements to memory.
