Get Ready to Shake Out
Are you earthquake ready? Earthquakes may not occur often in New York City, but everyone should know how to protect themselves. Practice your earthquake preparedness at home, school or work by taking part in the Great ShakeOut, an annual opportunity to practice earthquake safety. All you have to do is drop, cover, and hold on: drop to the ground, take cover under a sturdy piece of furniture (like a table or desk), and hold on (and stay down until the shaking stops).
