Annual Great California ShakeOut will be held on Thursday

18 Octobre 2017

Yuma Union High School District sites will be taking part in the 2017 "Great Arizona ShakeOut" on Thursday, Oct. 19th.

We need to ask ourselves whether we're prepared to survive and recover when the next damaging quake strikes-and if we aren't, we need to take action now to change that. "The devastating hurricanes and earthquakes of the past several weeks are a reminder to take steps to be prepared".

"We consider our infrastructure, or how prepared we are at home or at the office".

Quake risk is real in California.

According to The California Geological Survey there are thousands of faults in California, 500 of which are active and risky.

It is expected to be the largest-ever quake drill in Arizona.

Pole dancing eyes Olympic participation
The Federation for pole dancing can now apply for national sports recognition through the Department for Digital, Culture and Sport.

In addition to the quake drill, coastal communities will test tsunami sirens at 10:19 a.m. Thursday, using the real siren sound instead of the Westminster chimes used during the monthly tests.

To participate, individuals, businesses and groups can register at www.shakeoutbc.ca, where resources are available to consider what could happen during a large natural disaster, how best to be prepared, and ideas for how to simulate an quake for the drill. This is the sixth year the state has participated in the drill.

"Taking the proper actions during an quake can save lives and reduce the risk of injury", said Pomeroy. "The Shakeout drill is a flawless opportunity to prepare an emergency recovery plan with family members, coworkers and schoolmates".

The California Earthquake Authority (CEA) is a not-for-profit, privately funded, publicly managed organization that provides residential earthquake insurance and encourages Californians to reduce their risk of earthquake loss.
