The Great NorthEast ShakeOut

If you live in one of the six New England states or New York, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania, mark your calendars! Join millions of people who will Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:17 a.m. on October 17. The Great NorthEast ShakeOut, a regional opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes, is organized to encourage you, your community, and your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.

The website has a wealth of resources and planning documents, including a ShakeOut Drill Manual for non-profits and other organizations. Participate and prepare! And then share your drill stories and photos on the State Heritage Emergency Partnership blog.
