The Great Washington Shake-Out is planned for Thursday, October 18 at 10:18 a.m.  Schools from across the state, including all those in the Port Angeles School District, will participate.

Earthquake and other emergency drills are practiced on a regular basis during each school year.  Students and staff at each Port Angeles school building will practice how to Drop, Cover and Hold On, among other procedures, at 10:18 a.m. on Thursday, October 18 during the drill.

Community members are encouraged to practice earthquake procedures on October 18.  Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes---wherever you live, work, or travel.
