With the recent earthquake in California, CalOES is promoting an event to help with preparedness and is asking all Californians to participate in the Great California ShakeOut Drill that will be taking place on October 17th, 2019 at 10:17 am. Prior to the drill please visit the link above for valuable resources and videos to help you take proactive actions to prepare you for an earthquake. Then register your commitment to participate in the drill.
The Earthquake Early Warning (EEW)is something California is getting ready to roll out to out to potentially alert people seconds ahead of an earthquake. Check out more information on the CalOES website to better understand this system, how it works and what limitations it has.
