Where is it best to take cover during an earthquake?

From a firefighter point of view it would be next to your bed on the floor. In the Northridge quake of 94 all the people who died in the apartment building that came down were crushed in bed. There was still space on every floor to crawl up next to them and check for a pulse. If they had just rolled out of bed and onto the floor they would have lived. Just a thought.
