Lincoln County Emergency Management is urging citizens and businesses to register and participate in the 2017 Great Oregon ShakeOut. While the potential earthquake hazard depends upon your location, you could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes- at home, at work, at school or even on vacation. What we do now will determine our quality of life after an earthquake occurs. If you, your family, your business/employer, or community group plan to practice your “drop, cover and hold on” response, we would appreciate your time to register at http://shakeout.org/oregon/ .
By registering you will assist your Lincoln County Public Safety agencies with documenting the progressive nature of our community and demonstrating we are working to strengthen our community resiliency. The Great Oregon ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice “Drop, Cover and Hold On” for sixty seconds. The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.
Registration totals from Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills across the U.S. are also included in America’s PrepareAthon! participation totals.
