Working in An Earthquake Zone

I understand from many Ottawa staff today that several persons evacuated the building during yesterday's earthquake.  This includes one 3rd floor individual that reportedly performed a George Castanza special and leapt over colleagues during his express exit.
Our staff should be informed that leaving one's desk and heading outside is the worst possible action one may take.  The risk of injury from falling debris, building materials and glass is much higher than being injured inside the building.
The best action to take is to position yourself under one's desk.  The desk top and sides will be strong enough to withstand all but the heaviest of falling debris.
