Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

At 10:21am on Thursday, October 21st, millions of Californians, including Children’s Village Preschool, participated in the largest earthquake drill. The Great ShakeOut is held statewide on the third Thursday of October each year.

In addition to this large event, the teachers practice routine earthquake drills in the classroom on a regular basis. Before and after the drill, the teachers review what to do in the event of an earthquake (the ground starts to shake). Sometimes the process is shared as a flannel board story called “Bunnies in the hole”.

We invite everyone to visit the Great ShakeOut website at: https://www.shakeout.org/dropcoverholdon/
