Because earthquakes can happen anytime, be sure to teach everyone participating in your ShakeOut drill how to “drop, cover, and hold on” wherever they are.
- Check out ShakeOut Recommended Safety Actions to find directions that cover different scenarios and locations. For an illustration of how to “drop, cover, and hold on” anywhere, see Washington Emergency Management Division’s When an Earthquake Strikes poster.
- Scroll through ShakeOut drill manuals and other planning documents to discover more ways to prepare for different situations.
- And last, but not least, remind everyone in your network that it’s almost time to ShakeOut: join in the drill on October 21, 2021!
