At 10:15 a.m. on April 28, 2011, millions of central U.S. residents will practice Drop, Cover, and Hold On. Many people and organizations will also practice other aspects of their emergency plans.
The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut will be the largest earthquake preparedness event in central U.S. history and will be held on the fourth Thursday in April of 2011.
Register now and join our goal of one million participants in 2011 practicing quake safety!
The central U.S. must get better prepared before the next big earthquake, and also practice how to protect ourselves when it happens. The purpose of the ShakeOut is to help people and organizations do both.
