Being Prepared for the Earth to Move

| February 6, 2013

Drop, cover and hold on!

February is Earthquake Awareness month, a reminder for all to be better prepared for major earthquakes and to practice how to protect our families and ourselves when they occur.

On Feb. 7, at 10:15 a.m., an estimated 2.5 million people in nine states will participate in an annual exercise called the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut. Click here to learn how you can participate.

Earthquakes can strike any time: when you’re at home, at work, at school or even when you’re on vacation. This is a good time to evaluate your plans for earthquake preparedness no matter where you are. For more information on making your plan, go to:

I would like more information, please contact Scott Patterson in the Public Safety Office at or ext. 8708.

More information on earthquake preparedness is located on the Office of Public Safety’s Crisis Response webpage.
