Tomorrow is the Great Washington Shake-Out!

Everyone everywhere should know how to protect themselves during an earthquake – at home, work, school, or while traveling in an earthquake-prone region. While earthquakes are unpredictable, preparation efforts can greatly reduce physical injuries and property damage. Research shows that when people practice what to do ahead of time, they are more likely to respond instinctively with the correct action during an emergency.

This year, consider now how you incorporate COVID-19 health and safety guidelines into your drill. Many are planning to join in the Shake Out at 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, but you can choose to practice these vital skills when its most convenient for you, your family and your workplace. 

Check out the FAQ page on the website for ideas on how to include children, neighbors or the people you work with in becoming part of a better prepared community. Remember to Drop! Cover! And Hold On!
