Great California ShakeOut Drill

On Thursday, Oct. 16 at 10:16 a.m., get ready to DROP where you are, COVER your head or get under a sturdy desk or table, HOLD ON to something sturdy and stay in place until the shaking stops. This year it is estimated that more than 9 million Californians will participate in the Great California ShakeOut Drill, an annual, five minute drill (no evacuation included) which is part of a worldwide earthquake drill. .  There are many fun and creative ways to participate, so register! SHAKEOUT DON’T’ FREAKOUT!

To prepare for this and other major events, CI conducts regular building evacuation drills to test and verify the building fire and evacuation notification alarms. In the event of a real earthquake emergency, occupants would DROP, COVER & HOLD ON and then immediately evacuate their building with the assistance of their Building Marshals who are appointed by the University to assist building occupants in the event of an emergency.

For information regarding the Building Marshal program and to develop your personal evacuation plan, visit the Emergency Preparedness website.
