Today, October 18th, at 10:18 am The Polyclinic, along with millions of other people will drop, cover, and hold to practice earthquake preparedness in The Great Washington Shake Out.
What is it?
The Great Washington Shake Out aims to teach Washingtonians what to do before, during, and after a major earthquake. At 10:18 am those participating should take a moment wherever they are to drop, cover, and hold for at least 60 seconds, as if a real earthquake was happening.
Who can participate?
Everyone in Washington is encouraged to participate at work, school, home, in a group, or by yourself. The Polyclinic employees and providers will be participating at all locations and patients are welcome and encouraged to participate too. The safety of our employees and patients is of the upmost importance, so join us in earthquake safety and preparation.
