GET READY TO SHAKEOUT!



If you participated on 10/16 but did not register, it's not too late! You can also register to hold your drill on any day through the end of the year.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On
at 10:16 a.m. on October 16* during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills!

Alaskans can join them today by
registering for the October 2014 Great Alaska ShakeOut. Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel.

Earlier this year, a special ShakeOut drill with more than 100,000 participants was held to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March 27, 1964 Great Alaska Earthquake.

Participating is a great way for your family or organization to get prepared for big earthquakes by practicing how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On and other aspects of your emergency plans.

*If you cannot hold your ShakeOut drill on 10/16, you can select another day when you register.
