Great California ShakeOut

Time: 10:17 am-10:18 am


The entire campus community is encouraged to particpate in the largest Earthquake Drill yet. Join millions of Californians on October 17th at 10:17 a.m., and Drop, Cover and Hold On for sixty seconds.

Be an ambassador for earthquake preparedness by reminding others to join in by setting your watch or cell phones to remind you to practice earthquake safety!


Official rescue teams who have been dispatched to the scene of earthquakes and other disasters around the world continue to advocate use of the internationally recognized "Drop, Cover and Hold On" protocol to protect lives during earthquakes:

DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.
If there isn’t a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms. Do not try to run to another room just to get under a table.

These are general guidelines for most situations. Depending on where you are (in bed, driving, in a theater, etc.), you might take other actions, as described in Recommended Earthquake Safety Action. Check out the link above to learn more.
