Great Washington ShakeOut Earthquake Drill is October 15


On October 15, the 2020 Great Washington ShakeOut will take place. Consider joining millions of people worldwide in an annual earthquake drill.  Federal, state, and local emergency management experts recommend that “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” is the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during earthquakes.


While our schools typically practice and reinforce these steps in drills throughout the year, we recommend families practice the same at home.  Below are resources to help you ensure your family and home will be prepared.
