Only 16 Days Until the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut
The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut is a day of special events featuring one of the largest earthquake preparedness events in central U.S. history, organized to inspire central U.S. residents to get ready for big earthquakes, and to prevent disasters from becoming catastrophes. What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. The ShakeOut drill will occur in houses, businesses, and public spaces alike throughout the central U.S. at 10:15 a.m. on April 28, 2011. Free registration at www.ShakeOut.org/centralus will pledge an individual’s or group’s participation in this important preparedness event. Participants will receive information on how to prepare for the inevitable major earthquake in the region and what actions to take before, during, and after the shaking.
