San Bernardino—At 10:19am on Thursday, October 19, San Bernardino residents are encouraged to join more than 600,000 people who live and work in the county—and millions of people worldwide—by practicing how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On.
Although some parts of California are more likely to experience earthquakes than others, the state overall is at higher risk for earthquakes, compared to the rest of the country. The Great California ShakeOut provides an annual opportunity to practice safety during major earthquakes.
Register your family and friends as ShakeOut participants at www.shakeout.org/california/register/. Participation can provide peace of mind around preparation, survival, and rapid recovery before, during, and after a major earthquake event.
