Today is National Drill Day!

Earthquake DrillCoinciding with today’s Great ShakeOut earthquake prep event, today is also National Drill Day! It’s a great time to prep your co-workers and families by conducting simple safety drills. Some ideas:

  • Conduct a mock texting drill to highlight the communications value of texting in a disaster
  • Practice emergency rendezvous points
  • Practice how to shelter-in-place in case of a weather emergency

And of course, join in the Great ShakeOut’s Drop, Cover and Hold On practice, by dropping to the ground, taking cover under a desk or sturdy table, and holding on until the shaking stops.
