2015 Great Central US Shakeout

Date: 
Thu 10-15 10:15am - 10:30am
Description: 

The 2015 Great Central U.S. Shakeout will be the largest preparedness event in central U.S. history. The Shakeout involves millions of people through a broad-based outreach program, partnership with media and public advocacy by hundreds of partners.

The event will be held October 15, 2015 at 10:15 AM local time, when schools, businesses and other organizations will participate in the drill. Registered participants will receive information on how to plan their drill and how to talk with others about earthquake preparedness.

All organizers ask is that participants register and, at a minimum, practice ―drop, cover and hold on‖ at 10:15 a.m. Damage affecting more than 40 million people could cripple Indiana if Hoosiers aren't prepared for an earthquake. To participate, visit www.shakeout.org/centralus and pledge participation from your family, school, business or organization.
