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.
