Participate in the Great ShakeOut

World's largest earthquake drill at 10:15 a.m., Oct. 15

When the ground starts to shake, what do you do? If it involves a doorway, a triangle, or running - these are not earthquake-safe actions. Learn about Drop, Cover, and Hold On, practice updated earthquake safety actions and how to survive and recover from the next damaging earthquake.

The Great ShakeOut drill will be at 10:15 a.m. on Oct. 15. Make sure to REGISTER and Get Ready to ShakeOut!

 

DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees.

  • This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.

COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand.

  • If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter
  • If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall (away from windows)
  • Stay on your knees; bend over to protect vital organs

HOLD ON until shaking stops.

  • Under shelter: hold on to it with one hand; be ready to move with your shelter if it shifts
  • No shelter: hold on to your head and neck with both arms and hands.
