The Great ShakeOut

The Great ShakeOut is a worldwide earthquake drill. On October 18 at 10:18 everyone drops, covers, and holds on to increase earthquake awareness. There are many ways to participate and you don’t have to exercise the drill on 10/18 @ 10:18, that’s just a fun easy way to promote the event. I spend a large portion of my time teaching earthquake awareness in NE Arkansas and I think Arkansas Living would be a great place to inform our citizens of the likelihood of having an earthquake on the New Madrid Seismic Zone and ways to prepare and mitigate for a catastrophic earthquake.

I have some great handouts I would love to share with you and hope that you will not only support ShakeOut, but also write an article on the states Earthquake program.

I was not able to upload a picture (wrong format) but if you’ll go to the ShakeOut website there are, under resources, different media images.

Thank you,
