We have standard Delta cabinets with regular wood drawers. The cabinets are bolted to the walls and locked in hopes of keeping things secure during a more severe earthquake. With ~700+ drawers of types the only evacuation plan is grabbing drawers - but removing them from the room is probably more dangerous than leaving them in place. In theory the room is engineered to withstand anything California can throw at it.
