Better check your earthquake info against what the Red Cross, FEMA and other governmental sites advise; they now advise that you should drop down, take cover and hold on. They do not advise that people get in doorways as many are hurt from the swinging doors and they are saying that modern homes (even built 20-30 years ago) are safe from collapsing and you only need to protect yourself from falling debris.

It would also be a good idea to include a fire arm or two with a sufficient ammount of ammunition for personal protection and/or procuring food just in case situations get out of hand.
