ShakeOut Success

Congrats to all! The El Camino College earthquake drill on October 18 was a great success! The college’s participation in the Great California ShakeOut Earthquake Drill started with all students and employees following the instructions: “Drop, Cover, and Hold On,” followed by an orderly evacuation of buildings and on to assembly areas. This year’s drill was accomplished in just 21 minutes, from the beginning announcement to the “All Clear” message from the Incident Commander to safely return all persons to the buildings!


For the fourth year, the drill was very organized and all emergency responders performed in an exemplary manner. Information, education and drills such as the ShakeOut help prepare for an emergency – to react quickly, there must be practice. Again, thank you to the college community, all emergency responders, and everyone who helped make the Great California Shake,Out Earthquake Drill a success. Be prepared!
