America’s Shake-out Earthquake Drill Oct. 17 at 10:17a.m., includes Yelm


“Join the City in Earthquake Preparedness Drill”

  • From the City of Yelm:

“We hope you join the City of Yelm, the City of Yelm Police Department, and Yelm Community Schools, by participating in the Great Washington Shakeout event at 10:17 a.m. Oct. 17. As part of the Shakedown [Ed. note: must be an error, for obviously the city does not mean “Shakedown,” rather Shakeout!] , the Police Department will test our emergency notification system by sending an internal alert to staff and elected officials, who will then simulate what they would do in an actual earthquake event. Have you thought about what you would do in an earthquake or other emergency?

“For more information regarding the shakeout and the action you should take to protect yourself during an earthquake, please visit:  https://www.shakeout.org/dropcoverholdon/
