We all must get better prepared for major earthquakes, and practice how to protect ourselves when they happen. The purpose of the ShakeOut is to help people and organizations do both.
The ShakeOut is made possible by generous support of several sponsors, committed organizers from many organizations, and the encouragement of many others.
The ShakeOut is a partnership of the Central United States Earthquake Consortium, each participating state, FEMA, and several other key organizations.
Many other government agencies, businesses, organizations, and community groups are also promoting the ShakeOut to their members and constituents.
