The GREAT SHAKEOUT is Thursday, October 21st! Join us as across the state of Washington, earthquake drills will be happening! International ShakeOut Day is always the third Thursday of October (this year: October 21). While COVID-19 has brought many uncertainties and challenges, one thing’s for sure: ShakeOut is still happening this year!
This OSPI endorsed program is a good reminder for all of us! You can hold your #ShakeOut drill when and where you want. You can choose another date or several dates, and include people in multiple locations (home, work, or school), perhaps through video conferencing.It’s actually a good idea to practice earthquake safety in different situations each year, and ShakeOut Organizers are here to support you.
Per OCS POLICY: Section 2 Curriculum – 5.6 School Safety -page 137.
B. Fire/earthquake/lockdown drills must be conducted at least monthly or as often as directed by local competent authority. Specific plans must be developed for each school site by the local staff.
