ShakeOut Global Poster English GetReady Color


International ShakeOut Day is always the third Thursday of October. This year it's October 15th. While COVID-19 has brought many uncertainties and challenges, one thing's for sure -- ShakeOut is still happening this year!

As always, you can hold your #ShakeOut drill when and where you want. You can choose another date or several dates, and include people in mutiple locations (home, work, or school), perhaps through video conferencing.

It's actually a good idea to practice earthquake safety in different situations each year, and ShakeOut Organizers are here to support you.

Here at the City we are asking all of our employees to participate on Thursday 10/15 at 10:15 a.m.! This means that wherever they are at that moment, home, work, school, anywhere — they should Drop, Cover, and Hold On as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment, staying in that position for at least 60 seconds... How will you and your family/employees/neighbors participate?

The main goal of the ShakeOut is to get Washingtonians prepared for major earthquakes, so use the ShakeOut as an opportunity to learn what to do before, during, and after an earthquake.
