Get Ready to ShakeOut!

You may only have seconds to protect yourself during an earthquake before strong shaking knocks you down—or drops something on you.

Don’t let this happen to you or the people you care about! Practicing now prepares you to be ready to react when an earthquake strikes.

Every October, millions of people worldwide practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On during Great ShakeOut Earthquake drills.

Individuals can register themselves or their families. We also encourage larger groups to participate, such as:

  • Businesses
  • Schools 
  • Faith-based organizations
  • Community groups
  • Government agencies

Last year, more than 10.4 million Californians took part. This year, join your fellow Californians in getting earthquake ready by registering today.

The Earthquake Country Alliance

The Earthquake Country Alliance (ECA) is the organizer of California’s annual earthquake drill.

ECA is a statewide public-private partnership of people, organizations, and regional alliances that work together to improve preparedness, mitigation and resiliency.
