ShakeOut Earthquake drill
October 15 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am
How do I take part?
New Zealand ShakeOut is a self-run earthquake drill.
- DROP down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.
- COVER your head and neck (or your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.
- HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.
While you are doing the drill, take note of what might be happening around you. Think about what you might need to do to prepare for a real earthquake.
