“Great Shake Out” Nov. 2nd @ 2:15pm

South Slope / BCSD                          Great Shake Out DRILL                  ( no evacuation of premises)

DROP, COVER, & HOLD:  The initial response is what staff members and students must do to protect themselves while a tremor occurs.

  • at the first indication of an earthquake, look for cover,  drop to the floor (get under a desk or a table and hold onto the desk, or table leg), cover the head and the neck (face away from windows and heavy items), and count to 60 (1 min.).
  • wait for an evacuation signal.           

EMERGENCY Response Drills are practiced regularly at South Slope until teachers feel confident that students know exactly what to do in an emergency.
