When Your World Shakes

October 2, 2013

In reading through my emails this a.m., I came across a reminder of the GREAT SHAKEOUT exercise – an EARTHQUAKE preparedness activity – coming in two weeks.earthquake pavement

October 17, 2013, is Idaho and Washington’s “Shake Out” exercise – a simple annual State-wide opportunity for you and your family, your office, your organization to review and even practice earthquake preparedness.

Know the moves you should make if your world shakes!

Consider this a rare warning of impending “disaster” and an invitation to participate  

Every small action of preparedness

adds to overall preparedness and peace of mind.

Go to and see how to make the most of any preparedness activity that you design.

 “Everyone, everywhere, should know how to protect themselves in an earthquake. Even if earthquakes are rare where you live, they may happen where you or your family travel, or perhaps where you or your children may live one day.” (from the Great Idaho Shakeout webpage)

The SHAKEOUT website gives links to Washington and Idaho web pages where you will find instruction on not only how to participate in the GREAT SHAKEOUT, but how to prepare for this type of disaster.
