What will you be doing at 10:18 a.m. on Thursday, 18 October? If you are in the state of Washington, we hope you’ll be participating in the 2012 Great Washington ShakeOut, a statewide earthquake drill.
The ShakeOut has been organized to encourage residents to ready themselves and their loved ones in the event of an earthquake. This includes reviewing and updating emergency plans and supplies and securing spaces to prevent damage and injuries. It is important to remember that earthquakes can occur at any time in any place.
