Mather, California – Today, California State Councilor, Luz Rivas, California Geological Survey scientist Steve Bohlin, Executive Director of the California Seismic Safety Commission, Richard McCarthy, joined the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES), Vice President Christina Carey to shed Spotlight on California Earthquake Warning Campaign and MyShake App in recognition of International Check Out Day.

Those attending the press conference participated in nearly Great California Shakeout earthquake training with more than 17 million people around the world, by following safety precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, for the first time, the MyShake app was tested in conjunction with statewide workouts. The app is one of several delivery tools for the Earthquake Warning California app.

“ShakeOut is an important reminder that earthquakes are a real risk in California. Knowing what to do in the event of an earthquake will help you, your family, and your community achieve more positive outcomes.” Also, having tools and resources such as MyShake is another important way to prepare. This tool can provide seconds of warning, before an earthquake, giving you the opportunity to prepare. “

Earlier this month, Cal OES launched an awareness and awareness campaign to warn California of earthquakes to “do not keep watch.” The goal of the campaign is to educate California residents about the tools and resources available to help California residents stay safe during an earthquake. Although this year has brought doubts and challenges, events and situations in our lives have the potential to surprise us, but now earthquakes don’t have to – we urge California residents to take a minute to download the free MyShake app.

“The Big One is just around the corner. With more than 500 active fault lines in California, 40 million residents, and unique landscapes, a major earthquake could be catastrophic for our state.” Association Member Luz Rivas (Chair of the Joint Legislative Committee) said Emergency Management) The best way to mitigate disaster is preparedness. “I applaud the legislature’s work to fund and maintain the nation’s first earthquake early warning system, and Cal OES for hosting the annual Great Shake Out to remind residents of earthquake preparedness and practice.”

In addition to highlighting and promoting new and innovative technologies for emergency preparedness, mitigation and escalation, Earthquake Warning California reminds and encourages California residents to prepare before, during and after a disaster in their homes, businesses, and communities by planning to stay safe. Earthquakes can happen in California at any time; Knowing how to protect yourself and your family just by receiving a stimulation or feeling vibrated is key.

“Everyone in California is affected by severe earthquakes and their implications. This is why it is important for California residents to prepare, including developing a disaster plan, and why it is important for us to provide state and local officials with scientific information and data for inclusion in planning and response,” Said Steve Bohlin, acting geologist and state president from the California Geological Survey, part of the conservation division. “Good information can save lives.”

International Check Out Day is held annually on the third Thursday of October. During the self-paced exercise, participants practice how to “drop, cover and wait”. With support from emergency officials and first responders, the safe response to an earthquake is:

* Drop your place, on your hands and knees. * Cover your head and neck with one arm and one hand. * If there’s a sturdy table or desk nearby, crawl underneath for shelter. * If there is no shelter nearby, crawl by an interior wall (away from windows). * Stay on your knees, and bend over to protect vital organs. Hold it until the shaking stops. * Under Shelter: Hold onto it with one hand and be ready to move in with your shelter if it shifts. * No shelter: Hold your head and neck with both arms and hands.
