Preparedness Policy and Guidance

Collapsing buildings and safe triangles instead of "duck and cover" approach

what about teaching people in the event of a earthquake, bombing or buiding collapse, instead of duck and cover, I read recently that there is a TRIANGLE of safe space created next to any object where a person can lie flat - prior to reading that article or watching that video (I can't remember the source) I did not realize that it was even a possibility. the information came from a man who studied collapsing buildings for years and he said that fatalities could have been avoided if only people knew WHERE and HOW to place themselves before a collapse occurred. This was life saving information that I had never heard and the word certainly needs to get out mainstream to help save people's lives in the event of disaster.
