Drop, cover and hold on!
Submitted By the City of Fremont
On October 21, at 10:21 a.m., City of Fremont employees, as well as staff and students from Fremont Unified School District, will join millions of others throughout California to participate in The Great California ShakeOut - the largest earthquake drill in history!
This event will be a statewide "Drop, Cover and Hold On" drill. At 10:21 a.m., participants are encouraged to immediately drop to the ground, take cover by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and hold onto something sturdy and stay in place until the shaking stops (or the drill ends after 60 seconds).
Individuals, neighborhoods, and other organized groups are encouraged to plan their own activities to coincide with the statewide public drill. The official event website offers suggestions for how various types of participants can get involved, including audio and video files, fliers, and other downloadable resources.
