Where to Go During an Earthquake

Remember that stuff about hiding under a table or standing in a
doorway?    Well, forget it! This is a real eye opener. It could save
your life someday.


My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster
Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI ),
the world’s most experienced rescue team. The information in
this article will save lives in an earthquake.

I have  crawled  inside 875  collapsed  buildings, worked with
rescue teams from   60 countries,  founded rescue teams in
several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams
from many countries. I was the United Nations expert in Disaster
Mitigation for two years, and have worked at every major
disaster in the world  since 1985, except for simultaneous

The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in
Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was
under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of
their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to
their desks in the aisles. It was obscene — unnecessary.

Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the
ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes
these objects, leaving a space or void next to them –
NOT  under them.

This space is what I call the    ‘triangle of life’.

The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact.
The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the
greater the probability that the person who is using this
void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch
collapsed buildings, on television, count the ‘triangles’ you
see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common
shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.


1.  Most everyone who simply ‘ducks and covers’ when
building collapse are crushed to death. People who get
under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.

2.  Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the
fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural
safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void.
Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next  to a bed, next to
a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave
a void next to it.

3.  Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to
be in during an earthquake Wood is flexible and moves with
the force of the earthquake. If  the wooden building does
collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden
building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings
will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many
injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.

4.  If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake
occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the
bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in
earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the
door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor,
next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.

5.  If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape
by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up
in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.

6.   Do  NOT  get under a doorway when buildings collapse
You be killed.    How? If you stand under a doorway and
the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed
by the ceiling above. If the door jam falls sideways you will
be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!

7.  Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different ‘moment
of frequency’ (they swing separately from the main part of the
building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously
bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes
place. The people who get on stairs before they  fail are
chopped up by the stair treads – horribly mutilated. Even if the
building doesn’t collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs
are a  likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the
stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse
later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always
be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is
not damaged.

8.  Get near the outer walls of buildings or outside of them if
possible – It is much better to be near the outside of the
building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are
from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the
probability that your escape route will be blocked.

9.  People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the
road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles;
which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the
decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the

San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles.
They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting
out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed
would have survived if they had been able to get out of their
cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had
voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had
columns fall directly across them.

10.  I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper
offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does
not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.

The world is experiencing  natural calamities so be prepared!

‘We are but angels with one wing, it takes two to fly’

In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology
to be correct.The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul,
University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to
film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a
home with 20 mannequins inside.

Ten mannequins did ‘duck and cover,’ and ten mannequins I
used in my ‘triangle of life’ survival method. After the simulated
earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered
the building to film and document the results. The film, in which
I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable,
scientific conditions , relevant to building collapse, showed
there would have been zero percent survival for those doing
duck and cover.

There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for
people using my method of the ‘triangle of life.’ This film has
been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and
the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA , Canada and
Latin America on the TV program Real TV.

Without listening or reading, simply by looking at the following
self-explanatory photos, you can learn more than in a thousand
words about how to protect yourself during a major earthquake…

If you are inside a vehicle, come out and sit or lie down next
to it. If something falls on the vehicle, it will leave an empty
space along the sides.
