Quinn Urges Participation In Thursday Earthquake Drill


Governor Pat Quinn is urging Illinoisans to take a few minutes Thursday to prepare for the possibility of an earthquake. 

 

A multi-state drill is planned for 10:17 Thursday morning, urging residents to practice “Drop, Cover and Hold On.”  In a major earthquake, people should drop to the ground, get under a sturdy table or desk, and hang on until the quake stops.

 

Illinois sits on two big fault lines, and experts say some parts of the state are vulnerable to severe damage if a major quake strikes.  The drill also encourages other readiness activities… including having an emergency kit of food, water and first aid supplies on hand.
