The ShakeOut is an earthquake drill that provides local communities, schools, businesses and organizations throughout the State of California with an opportunity to practice how to stay safe during an earthquake and to practice the protective action of “Drop, Cover and Hold On:”

  • If you are in a building, move no more than a few steps.
  • Drop to the ground, take Cover under a sturdy table or desk and Hold On until the shaking stops. Drop! Cover! And Hold On!
  • This essential drill, which can be conducted in as little as 90 seconds, serves as a reminder that earthquakes can occur at any time in any place; and knowing what to do in a disaster can make all the difference when seconds matter.
