Throughout the world every year, over 50 million people join in the Great Shakeout Earthquake Drill, taking a few minutes to practice three key moves that are known to reduce the risk of injury if an earthquake takes place.
IBC has been a partner of La Grande Secousse since it was first organized in Québec. This activity is intended to make people more aware of the risk of earthquakes and how to deal with them.
The exercise encourages families, communities, schools, and organizations to practice the three moves most likely to keep people safe during an earthquake: drop, cover, and hold on.
The earthquake drill is an excellent opportunity to identify potential risks around us.
