RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCT) October 15 is the annual Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill.
The Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill is a worldwide earthquake safety movement involving 17.1 million people throughout 2020.
Most participate in ShakeOut by registering to practice “Drop, Cover, and Hold On,” and many do much more.
Visit https://www.shakeout.org/southeast/register/ to register your organization, school, agency, business, or family and perform a ‘Drop, Cover, and Hold On’ drill on October 15 at 10:15 a.m., or any date and time that works best for you.
The drill can be completed together in-person or at home via videoconferencing.
Once registered you will:
- Learn how your organization, school, agency, business, or family can be more prepared for earthquakes.
- Be counted in the world’s largest earthquake drill.
- Receive ShakeOut news and other information about earthquakes and preparedness.
- Make a difference by motivating others to participate and be prepared.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, participants are adapting their ShakeOut activities through videoconferencing, choosing staggered or alternative dates, and following local health and safety guidelines (see ShakeOut.org/covid19).
