The Great California Shake Out & Big Rumble - October 15, 2009

On October 15, 2009 at 10:15 a.m., join other businesses and individuals in a statewide earthquake preparedness drill. Please click here for more information, and to register (no charge).

The 10:15 a.m. drop, cover, hold drill on 10/15/09 is part of a week-long series of events, called The Big Rumble, designed to increase understanding of what to do when an earthquake occurs. Everyone is encouraged to:
  • Conduct a drop, cover and hold drill
  • Take an inventory of disaster supplies (see for tips)
  • Update emergency and continuity of operations plans
  • Conduct an evacuation drill
  • Update family and business emergency notification rosters
  • Identify a relocation site for both work and home
  • Take pictures of your assets & make copies of important documents
  • Conduct a stay-in-place drill
Participation in the Great California Shakeout & Big Rumble and implementing the above suggestions is an excellent way to follow up on BOMA San Francisco’s Emergency Preparedness workshop held on October 1st. The workshop discussed the essentials of emergency preparedness and the best practices and lessons learned from the Ferry Building evacuation drill conducted on August 19th. Both the Ferry Building drill and the workshop were produced by members of BOMA San Francisco’s Emergency Preparedness Committee—click here for more information (and emergency preparedness resources).

If you’d like to get involved with this fast-growing and dynamic committee, please email John Bozeman, BOMA San Francisco's Legislative Assistant, at The committee meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the top (48th floor) of The Pyramid Center. Our next meeting will be on October 13th.

Thank you for sharing this information with tenants and customers.
