Shake Out, Don't Freak Out!
You are invited to join millions of people who will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” on October 18th at 10:18 a.m. in the 2018 Great Central U.S. ShakeOut! More than 58 million people were registered in ShakeOut drills worldwide in 2017. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to become better prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes. Why is “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” important to practice? You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake before strong shaking knocks you down, or something falls on you. Practicing helps you be ready to react.
