Post Date:10/17/2017 10:02 AM

This Thursday, October 19 at 10:19 a.m., OCSD employees will join an estimated 12.3 million residents statewide who will drop, cover and hold on during the Great ShakeOut earthquake drill.

The drill centers on the ShakeOut Earthquake scenario, a realistic portrayal of what could happen in a major earthquake on the southern end of the San Andreas Fault. The ShakeOut is your chance to practice how to protect yourself, and for everyone to become prepared. The goal is to prevent disasters from becoming catastrophes. You may only have seconds to protect yourself in an earthquake, so practice is important.
