2013 Great Central U.S. ShakeOut

You’re invited to join more than one million people who will drop, cover, and hold during the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut on February 7, 2013 at 10:15 AM, local time. This regional earthquake drill will include participants across nine states (Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Tennessee). These states will practice what to do when an actual earthquake occurs.

Participating in the ShakeOut only takes 90 seconds and provides an opportunity for communities to increase awareness of and readiness for earthquakes. Each state or region has a resource page on the ShakeOut website that provides drill manuals, custom flyers and other resources for schools, businesses, government agencies, nonprofits and more!

Sign up today and encourage family, friends, coworkers and others in your community to do the same. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to practice an earthquake drill!
