Schools, businesses, and organizations statewide will be dropping, covering and holding on today as part of the Great California ShakeOut. The ShakeOut is a day to practice an earthquake drill, and some do more.
The drill is scheduled for 10:15 a.m., but the ShakeOut encourages participants to choose any date and time that works to practice “Drop, Cover and Hold On.”
To register an organization, go to shakeout.org/california/centralcoast.
The Santa Maria Joint Union High School District is participating today, including agriculture students on its farm facilities.
