Recently, we have seen a great increase in earthquakes across the country. From small to extremely large earthquakes, we should all be prepared – so I highly recommend that you participate in today’s Earthquake ShakeOut training/exercise/drill.
So on Thursday October 16, 2014 at 10:16am – practice your earthquake safety procedures with 9 other states in our region using these three easy steps:
1. DROP to the ground
2. Take COVER under a sturdy table or desk, if possible, and protect your head and neck
3. HOLD ON until the shaking stops
Following these 3 easy steps will help protect and you during an earthquake.
ShakeOut is coordinated by the Central U.S. Earthquake Consortium and the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
See, even the cool kids are doing it.
