2018 Great Washington Shakeout
It’s just one week until the 2018 Great Washington Shakeout earthquake drill on October 18th. You can join the growing number of islanders who are preparing for “the big one” by signing up online. It’s quick and easy to do at: http://shakeout.org/washington
So far, more than 700 people in the islands are involved. This includes school districts, fire departments, a day care, county government, local businesses, and household participants.
When you register you’ll receive Shakeout news and preparedness info, and be counted among those making preparations. The recent hurricanes in the Southeast have provided plenty of examples of the consequences of natural disasters, and the difference that preparedness makes in how communities survive.
You can help prepare your family and community by participating in the Great Washington Shakeout drill. If you have questions or would like help getting started, contact the DEM office at, 370-0587, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up now, and “Be Prepared, It’s The Island Way!”
