Clackamas County to participate in Great ShakeOut on Oct. 15

On Oct. 15 at 10:15 a.m., Clackamas County will participate in the world’s largest annual Drop, Cover, and Hold On earthquake drill, the Great ShakeOut.

More than 516,000 Oregonians have already registered to participate in this year’s drill. The Oregon Office of Emergency Management is encouraging residents to participate. Register online today.

During the drill, Clackamas County employees will practice the Drop, Cover and Hold On technique. This is the correct action to take in the event of an earthquake.

Online resources about earthquake preparedness can be found on the Great ShakeOut’s website and from the Clackamas County Department of Emergency Management.

For more information, members of the media and public may contact Community Relations Specialist Dylan Blaylock at 503-742-5917.
