ShakeOut Drill Scheduled For Thursday Geology

Humboldt State’s campus community is encouraged to participate in the Great California ShakeOut Drill (, an annual event to practice what to do when you feel an earthquake. The drill is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m.

To participate, start by setting your cell phone or watch alarm for 10:15 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 15.  At that time, drop to the ground or floor, cover yourself by getting under a table or desk (or if outside protect your head with an arm), and hold on for 60 seconds. Drop, cover, and hold.

Videos prepared by HSU Geology Professor Emerita Lori Dengler about exactly what to do, can be viewed at  This emergency management website also has summaries about how to respond in many other types of emergency.
