The Great Shake Out Statewide Drill
October 19 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am PDT
TCARES will be with the County OES in the Emergency Operations Center on Striker Court. We will begin a Net around 10:19 am (the time of the simulated earthquake) and react to a simulated area wide power and communications outage. Standby for some more announcements and assignments.
At 10:19 a.m. on October 19, 2023, millions of Californians will “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” in The Great California ShakeOut, the state’s largest earthquake drill ever! All volunteer radio groups are encouraged to participate in the drill (or plan a more extensive exercise).
Major earthquakes may happen anywhere you live, work, or travel. The ShakeOut is our chance to practice how to protect ourselves, and for everyone to become prepared. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a catastrophe for you, your organization, and your community.
