The Great Washington ShakeOut
October 19, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
Join millions of people worldwide and practice how to “drop, cover and hold on” at 10:19am on Thursday, October 19 during Great ShakeOut Earthquake drills.
In MOST situations, you will reduce your chance of injury if you:
|DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.|
COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand
|HOLD ON until shaking stops
