Subject: [DCHAS-L] Earthquake Drills in the Lab


Our campus is having an earthquake drill this week during my general chemistry laboratory. I'm a transplant to Southern California and, while I know the general principles of dropping down and getting under a desk, etc. I'd like hear if anyone has specific advice for laboratory students in the event of an earthquake.
