Great Central U.S. Shake Out
October 18, 2018
Please mark October 18, 2018 at 10:18 a.m. on your calendars!
Our Illinois Conference is a registered participant in Great Central U.S. Shake Out!
On this date, at 10:18 a.m., people from all around the nation will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On – the key steps to surviving an earthquake. An earthquake can strike anywhere at any time. Whether you are at home, at work, or on vacation, being prepared is the best way to survive and recover quickly from a quake.
Illinois is located on the second most active fault line in North America.
The main goal of Shakeout is to get everyone prepared for a major earthquake, so use this earthquake drill as an opportunity to learn what to do before, during and after an earthquake. Also, take this time to review your personal and professional emergency plans. For more tips on how to prepare, protect and recover, visit ready.illinois.gov.
