Are you prepared for the next big earthquake? Tomorrow, Thursday, October 20, 2016, at 10:20 am, millions of people will join in the annual Great California ShakeOut, bringing awareness to a very real threat to California. Preparedness and knowledge are the keys to surviving during and after a significant earthquake.
Remember, if an earthquake strikes us today - Drop! Cover! And, Hold On!
•DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
•Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
•HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.
