The 2012 Great California ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The 2012 Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill is now four weeks from today, October 18th at 10:18 a.m., and more than 7.9 million people have been registered to participate!

If you participated in the past but have not yet renewed your registration for 2012, or if you are not sure if you are registered this year, please take a minute to log in today at If you are already registered for 2012, thank you! Millions of people will practice earthquake safety and get prepared this year... because you, your organization, or your school is leading the way.

BOMA Members are encouraged to watch a great video from California Emergency Management Agency and the American Red Cross to learn how to prepare, survive, and recover!

Is your drill a potential ShakeOut Media Venue?

Will your drill on October 18th include interesting visuals or activities of potential interest to the news media? If so, please email with details, or complete our event submission form. We may include your event on our list of ShakeOut Media Venues which will be online soon.

Who will ShakeOut with you?

A great way to help others in your network prepare to survive and recover is to encourage them to register to participate in the Great California ShakeOut.  Let them know that you are participating and ask them to join you by registering at Spread the word at family gatherings, community events, and work meetings, and online with email, facebook, or twitter. You can also place one of the ShakeOut web banners on your organization's website, display posters in your office, distribute flyers, and use other materials available on the ShakeOut Resources page.
