You’re invited to sign up now for the third annual earthquake and tsunami drill in October–Great Washington ShakeOut–and to plan ShakeOut activities.

The focus of Great Washington ShakeOut is a statewide “Drop, Cover, Hold On” earthquake drill and–for coastal jurisdictions–a tsunami siren test that demonstrates the importance of emergency preparedness at home, school and the workplace. As part of the tsunami siren test, coastal schools will practice evacuation procedures; coastal residents are encouraged to do the same.
