Get Ready to ShakeOut: Thursday, October 16, 2014


Millions of people worldwide will practice how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” at 10:16 a.m. on Thursday, October 16, 2014 during the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill, which began in California in 2008.


SCE will be joining 10.1 million participants (and counting) in the Great California ShakeOut Drill. All students, faculty and staff are asked to practice the drop, cover, and hold on exercise.  The Anaheim Campus and the SCE Wilshire Center will also practice evacuation.  When instructed, safely evacuate to the Center’s designated location. Remain in your evacuation areas until instructed to return to your class/building.

If you have additional questions, ask your instructor, program manager, or SCE Center Dean of Instruction and Student Services.  Thank you in advance for participating in this drill.


Earthquakes happen without warning. It is important to be prepared — both at home and at work. Learn more at www.shakeout.org/california.
