ShakeOut earthquake preparedness drill to happen Thursday

Melissa Simon

Police Services sent out an email Wednesday to announce an earthquake ShakeOut that will be taking place on Thursday at 10:18 a.m. on the Sierra Quad.

The ShakeOut will demonstrate how you should act during an earthquake, which is to stop, drop and hold on. The demonstration will last approximately three to five minutes.

The purpose of this event is to practice how to be prepared should an earthquake strike at any moment.

Geology 104 students will also be on hand to distribute information on earthquake tips, emergency preparedness and what supplies are necessary to be more prepared.
