Worldwide Shake Out Drill is coming!!! Thursday October 19th, at 10:19 AM!

Oct-12-2017

Your participation is highly encouraged to take one minute of time at 10:19 AM on October 15th to DROP, COVER & HOLD as if an earthquake was occurring.

What to do on Thursday, October 19th at 10:19 AM?

  • DROP – get on your knees, put one hand on the back of your neck, the other hand on top of your head
  • COVER – get in the DROP position under sturdy furniture, if COVER is not available get in DROP position in the safest place in a distance of 10 – 15 feet from you
  • HOLD – Stay under COVER, you may need to use one hand to hold on to the furniture if it moves

This event is intended to last one minute, but more importantly to evaluate your surroundings for safety if a large earthquake was to happen. Preparing with the new guidance instructions (Drop, Cover, and Hold) will help create an automatic response of what to look for in your surroundings or action to take that increases safety.

The Redmond Airport will be putting up signs to notify the public and encourage their participation in this event.
