Great Concordia ShakeOut:
On October 28, 2020, at 10:28 AM, Concordia will be holding a campus-wide earthquake drill. Before 10:28 AM an alert will be sent out to commence the drill. Whether or not you receive the alert, please follow the below steps wherever you are on campus. For more information about the ShakeOut, please visit www.shakeout.org. Concordia is holding the ShakeOut a day earlier than the nation-wide drill.
In the event of an earthquake on campus:
- Step 1 – Drop to the ground; find cover (if there is no large table or desk, use a chair to protect your head); and hold on to the desk/table/chair. Hold your position until the shaking stops.
- Step 2 – WE WILL NOT BE PRACTICING EVACUATION DURING THIS DRILL - In an actual earthuake, once the shaking has subsided, please evacuate the building and go to the assembly area for your building. Remember to stand a safe distance from the building (distance should equal the height of the building or more) and to practice physical distancing in the assembly area.
