The Great Washington ShakeOut

  Emergency Earthquake Drill: October 19, 10:19 am

Every year LCC participates in The Great Washington ShakeOut, a statewide earthquake drill designed to help you understand how to protect yourself in a real earthquake. During the drill LCC will activate all emergency communication channels. Please react as if this were a real earthquake. Afterwards, you may return to your normal college activities.

Why is this drill important?

LCC is located in a seismically active area with a history of large magnitude quakes. Future earthquakes will occur and our best course of action is to be prepared.

How should I prepare?
