A Great Shakeout Earthquake Drill was conducted Thursday morning at 10:17 a.m. if effort to project the shakeout mission of improving preparedness.
Everyone, everywhere, should know how to protect themselves in an earthquake. Even if earthquakes are rare where you live, they may happen where you or your family travel.
Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills are an annual opportunity for people in homes, schools, and organizations to practice what to do during earthquakes, and to improve preparedness.
Schools, government offices and more participated in the awareness drill.
Here are a couple of shots taken during the Great Shakeout earthquake drill today, taken during a Human Resources training session for new County of Marin employees.
