The Great California Shakeout, Wednesday, October 19th at 10:19 a.m.

An annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes

While some areas of California are more likely to have earthquakes than others (see below), all of California is at higher risk compared to the rest of the country. You could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes: at home, at work, at school, or even on vacation.

What we do now will determine our quality of life after our next big earthquake. Are you prepared to survive and recover quickly?
