At 10:20 a.m. on October 20, 2016, thousands of Oregonians will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” in The Great Oregon ShakeOut, the state’s largest earthquake drill ever! Everyone is encouraged to participate in the drill wherever you are at 10:20 a.m. on 10/20! Major earthquakes may happen anywhere you live, work, or travel. The ShakeOut is our chance to practice how to protect ourselves, and for everyone to become prepared. Millions of people worldwide have participated in Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills since 2008. The Great Oregon ShakeOut is held on the third Thursday of October each year. For more information go to www.shakeout.org/oregon.
