DRILL - Great Shakeout / Practice Earthquake Protective Actions
THIS IS A DRILL. Practice earthquake protective actions. DROP to the floor, COVER under a sturdy object, and HOLD ON. Why is it important to do a Drop, Cover, and Hold On drill? To react quickly you must practice often. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake, before strong shaking knocks you down--or drops something on you. Practicing helps you be ready to respond.
