Held annually on the third Thursday in October, The Great ShakeOut is a self-led drill during which individuals, families, and organizations practice their earthquake response plans. At minimum, everyone should know and practice the safe response to an earthquake, which is to DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON.
Sign up for free at www.shakeout.org/wyoming/ to receive earthquake resources, safety tips, and reminders leading up to the drill. Then, at 10:20 AM on Thursday, October 20th, join people across Wyoming and across the world in practicing your earthquake drill.
A prize drawing will be held for Teton County residents or workers who sign up for ShakeOut and pledge to complete an additional preparedness action.
You could win a deluxe, four-person earthquake survival kit valued at $165! Fill out this form to enter. Deadline is 5:00 PM on October 21, 2022.
