Join in The Great ShakeOut

Thursday, October 20, 2016
You are invited to join Los Angeles Firefighters and millions of people who will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” on October 20th at 10:20 a.m. in the 2016 Great California ShakeOut!
 
Participating is a great way for your family or organization to become better prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes.
 
Why is “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” important to practice? You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake before strong shaking knocks you down, or something falls on you. Practicing helps you be ready to react. 

It is also recommended that you, your school or organization, and your community review and update plans and supplies, and secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries. 

Everyone can participate! Individuals, families schools, government agencies, businesses and other organizations are all invited to register. Also view our partner at MySafeLA for additional information.
