At 10:16 a.m. today, millions took part in the Great California ShakeOut. This year’s drill included other states and countries, making it an international event.
The drill aims to prepare people for the next big earthquake. Students, staff and faculty were encouraged to “drop, cover and hold on” as part of the annual exercise.
USC has participated in the ShakeOut since it first began in 2008 as part of the university’s extensive emergency preparedness program managed by the USC Office of Fire Safety and Emergency Planning.
