The Great Southeast ShakeOut will take place on October 17, 2013 at 10:17 a.m. as part of South Carolina Earthquake Awareness Week. Similar to other emergency preparedness drills sponsored by SCOEM, the signal to begin the drill will be broadcast at 10:17 a.m. on NOAA tone-alert weather radio and broadcast media. Once the signal is broadcast, all participants should Drop, Cover, and Hold On as if there were a major earthquake occurring and stay in the position for at least 60 seconds. Earthquakes occur with no warning, leaving only seconds to seek protection.


Registration on the Southeast ShakeOut site is an important part of this event. Go to to register. Be sure to include the total number of people taking part in the drill with you. The Great Southeast ShakeOut drill is open to everyone in South Carolina. Private citizens, government agencies, schools, businesses, universities and many other groups in our state have already registered on the main ShakeOut site.
