ShakeOut Regions and Current Registration Levels

Everyone, everywhere, should know how to protect themselves during earthquakes. Even if earthquakes are rare where you live, they may happen where you or your family travel.

Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills are an annual opportunity for people in homes, schools, and organizations to practice what to do during earthquakes, and to improve preparedness.

Most participants are in one of the Official ShakeOut Regions shown below. People and organizations in other states or countries can also register to be included.
