Great ShakeOut

Established ten years ago, the Great American ShakeOut has encouraged children, adults and the community to be aware of new earthquake safety procedures! Today, millions of California residents will practice how to Drop, Cover & Hold On! Living in California, we have a greater risk of earthquakes…but it is smart for everyone to know what to do in the event of an earthquake.

Earthquakes can happen instantly and without warning. Do you know what to do? For example, if you are indoors, you should DROP to the ground, take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or furniture, and HOLD ON until the shaking stops! Additional safety tips can be found at Ready.gov and ways to participate in this day can be found at The Great American ShakeOut website.
