On October 18 at 10:18 am millions of people across the nation will be dropping, covering, and holding on to participate in The Great ShakeOut.

The goal is to spread awareness and help people prepare themselves for when an earthquake could unexpectedly hit.

In 2017, more than 58 million participated.
