Laney to Participate in ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

View this online at,

Laney College will participate in the Great California ShakeOut – the state-wide earthquake drill – on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 10:45 a.m. (Note: 10:45 a.m. is chosen to encourage greater anticipation from faculty and students instead of the suggested time at 10:19 a.m. when most classes are not in session). 

Safety Aids will use megaphones at various campus locations to alert you to the start and finish time of the drill. You DO NOT have to evacuate any premises during the exercise. 

During the drill, “Drop, Cover and Hold On” under any available large object that will protect you from falling debris for 60 seconds.  

Drop Cover and Hold On

After the drill, you are encouraged to:

  • Assess areas around your work space and classroom to identify any potential hazards if this were an actual earthquake.
  • Debrief the drill with your students or staff. 

For various learning resources you can share with students or staff before or after the drill, visit the ShakeOut website
