On Thursday, October 20th at 10:20am, millions of people all over California will practice what to do in the case of an earthquake. The answer is pretty simple: DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON. Take a moment and register for the Great California ShakeOut. It’s the easiest and most life-saving step of your disaster preparedness.
At the archery range?
Totally Unprepared team member Shabbir Safdar, an avid archery fan, tells us he’s likely to be at the Golden Gate archery range, probably pulling arrows out of a hay bale. Even if you’re outside, you should drop and cover, and if possible, hold on. There’s not much to get under at the archery range, but you can still get down and protect your head.
