Desk shelter / furniture

Desk shelter
Desk shelter

Among natural disasters, it is the very earthquake that happens most frequently. When the magnitude of earthquake is mild, what we should do is crawl under the desk to protect our body. However, when the magnitude is strong, the buildings collapse and are buried and leaving many missing. When the earthquake happens, 'Desk shelter' not only protects our body completely but also makes the rescue team find and rescue the missing people easily.
