The Great Shakeout is designed to help people prepare for the possibility of an earthquake- and ensuing natural disaster in their area. Both individuals and organizations can sign up for the Shakeout- and if you live in a tsunami-prone area, there will likely be a tsunami drill; like that at my workplace- the Hatfield Marine Science Center, Newport OR.

You can never be too prepared in the case of a natural disaster- check out my Tsunami and Disaster Preparedness page for more information and links for disaster preparedness. Practicing in the best-case scenario can prepare you for the worst.
