Participate in the Great California ShakeOut on October 19 California has more than 37 million people living and working in the state. A major earthquake could cause unprecedented devastation to residents, businesses, organizations and city infrastructure. What we do now here in Monterey Park before a big earthquake will determine what our lives will be like afterward. In anticipation of an earthquake, the Monterey Park Fire Department encourages everyone to “Be Prepared, Not Scared!” What better way to learn how to be prepared than to participate in the Great California ShakeOut on October 19, 2017, at 10:19 a.m.? People everywhere, such as residents, businesses, and schools throughout California will be conducting an earthquake drill on October 19 at 10:19 a.m. to learn and practice how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold on.” Last year, 10.6 million Californians participated in the Great ShakeOut and as of September 10 of this year, 7.8 million have registered already. The 2017 ShakeOut drill will be the largest preparedness event in U.S. history. To participate, go to www.ShakeOut.org/register and pledge your family, school, business, or organization’s participation in the drill. It is free and registered participants will receive information on how to plan a drill and how to create a dialogue with others about earthquake preparedness. All organizers ask is that participants register (so they can be counted and receive communications), and at the minimum practice "drop, cover, and hold on" at the specified time. Participating in the Great ShakeOut is only a five-minute commitment for something that can save your life. It all begins with registering, which is free and open to everyone. For more information, visit www.ShakeOut.org.
