So what is Drop, take cover and hold on?

Be safe and learn it:

  • DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
  • Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
  • HOLD ON to your shelter and be prepared to move with it until the shaking stops.

The Great Shakeout is about being prepared for an earthquake, knowing how to respond, and practicing that response.
