Great Shakeout Earthquake Drill in October

Washington State officials hope to register more than 1 million state participants on the exercise website which officially opened this week at http://www.shakeout.org/washington/.
Part of Washington’s preparation for the multi-state coordinated drill in October will be a statewide Drop, Cover & Hold Earthquake Drill at 9:45 a.m. on April 25. The drill will be initiated through the Emergency Alert System using the required monthly test for state broadcasters.
