The Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

The Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill
Posted on 10/10/2018
The City of Chino will, “Drop, Cover and Hold On” for the annual Great ShakeOut drill taking place on Thursday, October 18, at 10:18 a.m. All city buildings and employees will join millions across the world participating in the drill. 

Furthermore, the city will use this opportunity to test Chino Notify, the mass-emergency notification system used by the city. The City of Chino’s mass-notification system allows community members to choose the types of alert notifications to receive and the preferred method to receive them. 

The Great ShakeOut is the perfect time to sign up for emergency alerts or update your profile and settings if you are already registered at www.cityofchino.org/chinonotify. 

City Manager, Matthew Ballantyne states, “It is critical for community members to register and maintain their contact information in our mass-notification system.  We know cities with the ability to communicate with residents during emergencies and natural disasters can save lives.  Chino Notify is an additional communication tool in our arsenal of emergency preparation.”

The City of Chino encourages individuals, families, businesses, schools, government agencies, and organizations to sign up at www.ShakeOut.org/register and participate in this year’s earthquake drill.
