GET READY TO SHAKEOUT!


Start here to be included in the
2014 Great California ShakeOut!

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, which began in California in 2008.

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.

* You can hold your ShakeOut drill any day in October if 10/16 does not work.
