Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:16 a.m. on October 16* during the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills, which began in California in 2008.

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.

The Great California ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: “Drop, Cover and Hold On.” 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.

Fires & Earthquakes & Hurricane’s, oh my…get prepared!

I posted coupons for Irvine Park Railroad yesterday however due to the large brush fire burning in Silverado Canyon, many North OC Parks are currently affected. Irvine Regional Park/OC Zoo is now closed as it is serving as a fire camp for the Silverado Fire. It will be closed to the public through Wednesday 9/17/14.

With everything that’s going on, Fire’s, Earthquakes & Hurricane’s, its time to get prepared.

Does your family have designated meeting places in case of an emergency? Different disasters may require you to go to different places. Make sure you identify a meeting place in your neighborhood, a meeting place just outside your neighborhood, and a meeting place out of town. Review these plans with all members of your family.
