About the Great Shakeout
The GreatShakeOut earthquake drills, which began in 2008, are an annual opportunity for people in homes, schools, and organizations to practice what to do during earthquakes, and to improve preparedness. These events are made possible through a collaboration between several agencies including the USGS. Millions of people participate in the Great ShakeOut each year.
