Here in Earthquake country, a devastating Earthquake could strike at any time; being properly prepared and knowing how to respond will help you and your community recover as quickly as possible. Please join in helping make Washington more prepared for Earthquake hazards by reaching out to your community, and increasing participation in the Great Washington Shakeout.

On October 20th, at 10:20 am, registered parties will join individuals, schools, businesses and communities all over the world in a “Drop, Cover, and Hold on,” exercise to encourage Earthquake preparedness. Washington State alone has had over one million participants in each of the past two years, joining millions in the Pacific Northwest. To help achieve greater participation, and develop a more well-prepared Washington State, we are reaching out to you, and asking for your help getting your community involved!
