What is the meaning of と in this sentence?

このため、地震のときと同じように机の下などに入っている安全なことがあります。

It seems different from all senses in A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar. Kind of "in the manner of"?

here means when. It's a conditional (A と B), where B naturally follows from A. See this post.

The sentence as a whole reads like:

Because of this, it will be safe when you hide under a desk like you would during an earthquake.
