Emergency Preparedness Earthquake Drill

Organized by The Great California Shake Out
Thu Oct 17, 2013
Starts at 10:17 am

The ShakeOut Drill is scheduled for 10:17 am and 7:15 pm on October 17, 2013. This means that wherever you are at that moment (at home, at work, at school, etc.) you should Drop, Cover, and Hold On as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment. Stay in this position for at least 60 seconds.

There will not be any freeway closures, power outages, or other simulated effects of the hypothetical earthquake, unless your local government or utility company specifically notifies you about something of this nature.

The ShakeOut is not something you need to leave work to participate in. In fact, participating at work is encouraged! Businesses, organizations, schools and government agencies can register and have their employees practice Drop, Cover, and Hold On or have a more extensive emergency drill.

The main goal of the ShakeOut is to get Californians prepared for major earthquakes, so use the ShakeOut as an opportunity to learn what to do before, during and after an earthquake.

Anyone in California can participate, from a single individual at their home to a major company at the office. Talk to your coworkers, neighbors and friends about the ShakeOut and encourage their participation.
