Shake Out California

The Great California Shake Out!
Where?   When?  Will you be prepared?

What is Shake Out? The Earthquake Country Alliance (ECA) organizes California's annual statewide earthquake drill, with more than 11.4 million participants. ECA provides valuable earthquake preparedness information, interactive maps, games, quizzes, news, and events. We all must become better prepared for major earthquakes, and also practice how to protect ourselves when they happen. The purpose of the ShakeOut is to help people and organizations do both. Visit to register to participate, and to learn how you can prepare. Information is available in Spanish and other languages.
