      2. 10:15 am

        This is part of the 2015 International ShakeOut Day of Action on October 15.  This is a great time to learn and practice earthquake safety with millions of people worldwide.  In an earthquake, you may only have seconds to protect yourself before strong shaking knocks you down, or something falls on you. Practice quake-safe actions at 10:15 a.m. on October 15th. Why?  Because when the adrenaline kicks in, you may not act safely if you haven’t practiced the Drop, Cover, and Hold On drill before that moment. Know what to do when the shaking starts—register for the Great Central U.S. Shakeout http://www.shakeout.org/centralus/ and use the many resources for the drill and preparedness for schools, businesses, government agencies, families, and others. The drill will highlight the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” protective actions people should take when an earthquake begins.  You never know when you may use this knowledge anywhere in the world during your travels or future home locations.

        Everyone can participate! Individuals, families, businesses, schools, government agencies and organizations are all invited to join in on October 15th at 10:15 a.m. local time.
