EARTHQUAKE DRILL- Friday 8-26-22

Earthquakes strike without warning, life-protecting actions must be taken immediately at the first indication of ground shaking. There will not be time to think through what to do. Therefore, of all earthquake preparedness measures, earthquake drills are the most important. Their purpose is to help students (and staff) learn how to REACT immediately and appropriately. The essential components of earthquake drills are classroom discussions, demonstrations, and exercises designed to help students learn and practice WHERE to seek shelter and HOW to protect their heads and bodies from objects (e.g., debris from ceilings light fixtures, and shattered glass). Effective earthquake drills simulate (1) actions to be taken during an actual earthquake and (2) actions to be taken after the ground shaking stops. Building evacuation following an earthquake is imperative due to potential danger of fires or explosions. This section will help you determine: - What dangers to expect during an earthquake. - What quake-safe actions to take during an earthquake. - How to conduct classroom drills. - How to develop procedures for evacuating the school building after an earthquake. - How to practice and evaluate the effectiveness of your earthquake drills. Learn What to Expect During an Earthquake The first indication of a damaging earthquake may be a gentle shaking. You may notice the swaying of hanging plants and light fixtures, or hear objects wobbling on shelves. Or, you may be jarred first by a violent jolt (similar to a sonic boom). Or, you may hear a low (and perhaps very loud) rumbling noise. A second or two later, you’ll really feel the shaking; and, by this time, you’ll find it very difficult to move from one place to another. It’s important to take “quake-safe” action at the first indication of ground shaking. Don’t wait until you are certain an earthquake is occurring. As the ground shaking grows stronger, danger increases.
