The Great California Shakeout Drill
Posted by Jennifer Alcaraz on Oct 18, 2012 - 5:57:52 AM

BEVERLY HILLS—It has been announced that The Great California Shakeout Drill is scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 18 at 10:18 am, as stated in a press release by Therese Kosterman from the City of Beverly Hills website.  In addition to the Beverly Hills Unified School District participating in the event, so will the county and city of Los Angeles and the state of California.

 

The Great California Shakeout Drill has been taking place for five consecutive years now as part of a pre-cautionary lesson on what to expect and what actions to take when a real-time earthquake occurs.

 

As part of the drill, everyone participating will have to stop whatever they are doing at the moment, DROP to the ground, take COVER under a strong object (i.e. desk, table), and HOLD on.

 

On the day of the earthquake drill, if there are people visiting public buildings they will be instructed by others as to what actions to take during the drill. During the drill, which will last about two minutes, customer service will also be disrupted.

 

City businesses are being encouraged to participate in the drill in order to be better prepared when a real earthquake happens. For more information on how to be earthquake ready, people can visit www.shakeout.org.
