“DROP, COVER AND HOLD” THIS THURSDAY MORNING

 Surviving and recovering from a major earthquake is not a matter of luck. It’s a matter of being prepared to act, and act immediately at the first sign of the event — at home, work, school, and even while traveling.

If the earthquake were to hit, you would need to instinctively DROP, COVER, and HOLD where you are.

The dreaded Cascadia Subduction Zone event – a 9.0 + quake — would cause extensive damage. People who protect themselves effectively will be the people who can help their family, neighbors and community recover after it’s all over.

 SO, SET AN ALARM FOR 10:18 THURSDAY MORNING. WHEN IT GOES OFF, DROP, COVER AND HOLD WHEREVER YOU ARE.GET UNDER A DESK OR A TABLE AND PROTECT YOURSELF. 

 AND STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS.

 In case of a real quake, there will be no warning, and you could be hanging on for several minutes.

So, take part this Thursday.
