Great California ShakeOut 2016

On Thursday, October 20 at 10:20 a.m., USC and Annenberg will participate in the Great California ShakeOut Earthquake Drill.  All students, faculty and staff should practice the proper motions to protect themselves in case of an earthquake: Drop, Cover and Hold-On.


With the Governor's Office of Emergency Services putting California on high alert for an earthquake, recalling what to do during a disaster — as well as before one — is more important than ever.
