Earthquake prep at SAN

Picture1Have you ever felt the earth move under your feet? It’s not a good feeling! Earthquakes are very unsettling (pun intended).

Knowing what to do in the event of an earthquake can calm the nerves and improve the outcome. So, earthquake preparedness has been added to the list of multiple ongoing safety initiatives here at the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.

At 10:15 a.m. on October 15, we will be participating in The Great California ShakeOut, the largest earthquake drill in history. There are more than six million people signed up to participate! The drill will help us practice how to protect ourselves during an earthquake and also emphasize the importance of being prepared — both at Shakeoutwork and at home.

This marks the second year of the program and the second year of the Airport Authority’s participation. Last November, we joined nearly 5.5 million people in The Great Southern California ShakeOut drill. Because it was so successful, the decision was made to hold the drillmary statewide on the third Thursday of October every year.

Everyone can participate! Go to the ShakeOut website and register today.

So, what are you supposed to do when an earthquake strikes? According to the Earthquake Country Alliance, you should “Drop, Cover and Hold On.” You can click here for more tips on how to prepare, protect and recover in the event of an earthquake.
