To help the campus community prepare for an earthquake, UBC participates in the annual province-wide ShakeOut BC earthquake preparedness exercise.
On October 19 at 10:19am, practice DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON, the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during earthquakes.
- DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
- Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
- HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.
