Practice Drop, Cover and Hold during the Great Shakeout drill Oct. 15

This Thursday, Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m. is the “International Great Shakeout” drill to remind us all to Drop, Cover and Hold when earthquakes happen. You can practice in your home, workplace or wherever you are. Everyone is encouraged to play the Shakeout drill broadcast on their devices  and drop, cover and hold.

But before Thursday, take a moment to look around your workspace and locate safe places you could drop, cover and hold.  Here’s a brief video on what to do  Several other videos of what to do in different situations are listed under the Earthquake Safety Video list on the right sidebar of the video if you are interested.

You can find more information about preparing for earthquakes on our website .
