2012 Great Shake Out MySafe:LA Drill
Ricardo Aguilar – Shakeout 2012 Student Film

Each earthquake drill we conduct with school kids simulates an earthquake as realistically as possible. All students and faculty practice DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON where everyone stops what they’re doing, drops to the ground, and covers (under a desk, or covers heads if nothing is close by), and holds on. Sometimes we simulate a collapsed building and have the fire department and specially trained FEMA Search and Rescue Dogs look for “trapped” students.
