I am working on putting together some laboratory earthquake preparedness training and was wondering if anyone out there has some good pictures of labs after an earthquake they are willing to share.  Also, if you have any pictures of controls you use to reduce debris during an earthquake that would also be appreciated. 


The audience for this will not be building new labs or doing major remodeling, but instead the focus is on things that can be done in a working laboratory to keep lab workers safe during an earthquake.  Thank you for any assistance or suggestions you can offer.
