If you live in one of the central states in the United States, you can participate in The Great Central US Shake Out, happening on April 28th 2011. Folks in Indiana will get to do it a bit earlier, on April 19th.
This is the first time such a large scale drill is being done – there are already 1.7 million people participating. The idea is for individuals, businesses, schools, faith-based organizations, community groups, scouts, and others to participate in the ShakeOut, to get prepared for earthquakes, and to knowledge with others.
Here’s a video of a Drop, Cover and Hold On Drill which was held in a classroom.
