Join the King County Office of Emergency Management and more than 700,000 individuals across the state on Thursday, October 16 at 10:16 AM as we practice the Drop, Cover, and Hold On response to an earthquake. This annual drill is important for building muscle memory for proper steps to take when the ground begins to shake. Participation is easy! Take 30 seconds to DROP under your desk or a sturdy table, COVER your head, and HOLD ON to the desk or table leg. While you’re there, snap a picture of yourself and share online using #dropcoverselfie.
