October 16th marks the day when schools, businesses and families across the southeast region will participate in an annual “Shakeout”, earthquake preparedness drill. Earthquakes can provide unsettling circumstances, no matter where you are when one hits – be it school, home, or the grocery store.
It is wonderful practice for us all to be prepared with some fundamental steps that have proven to minimize risk and damage during these events in the past.
In addition to our own Crisis Manual and in-house materials, we utilize the resources offered by this organization.
Half of the battle in emergency response is being prepared before emergencies come. We invite you – no matter who or where you are – to participate with us.
Let us know how we can help.
