ShakeOut Considerations for COVID-19- where and when will your drill be held? Will you drill together online? If in person, follow health and safety guidelines.

Start here to be included in the
2021 Great Guam ShakeOut!

International ShakeOut Day is always the third Thursday of October (this year: October 21). While COVID-19 has brought many uncertainties and challenges, one thing's for sure: ShakeOut is still happening this year!

As always, you can hold your #ShakeOut drill when and where you want. You can choose another date or several dates, and include people in multiple locations (home, work, or school), perhaps through video conferencing.

It's actually a good idea to practice earthquake safety in different situations each year, and ShakeOut Organizers are here to support you.
