SCE Will Participate in the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill

At 10:21 a.m. on Thursday, October 21, 2010, all three NOCCCD schools, including Cypress College, Fullerton College and the School of Continuing Education (SCE), will participate in a regional earthquake drill called “The Great Shakeout.” In an effort to better prepare for an actual earthquake in an after-business hours situation, while classes may be taking place, the NOCCCD’s Anaheim Campus will also hold an evening drill on October 28, 2010.

The two primary goals for the drill are to practice the duck, cover and hold exercise and to safely evacuate the building. All faculty members will evacuate their classes to their designated campus areas.

Please follow these key steps during the earthquake drill on October 21, 2010 at 10:21 a.m. or at the on the evening of October 28, 2010 at the Anaheim Campus:

Earthquake Safety Procedures: Duck, Cover and Hold, then Evacuate

  • Duck - Immediately duck down close to the floor and take cover.
  • Cover - Take cover under a table, desk, other sturdy furniture, or stay close to an interior wall and cover your head, neck with your arms.
  • Hold - If you are under something, hold on to it and be prepared to move with it. Once the shaking stops, hang up any telephone receivers that were knocked off during the earthquake.
  • Evacuate - Evacuate using the nearest exit and assemble in your campus’ west parking lot (follow our AC evacuation procedures).

According to the website,, the safest place during an earthquake is to duck under a sturdy surface – this is safer than running to a doorway for protective cover. If the doorway is your only option, drop down to the floor and brace yourself so your back is to the doorjamb, where the door is hinged to the frame.

The website also states that if you are outside, move away from buildings, overhead electrical wires, poles, signs and trees. If you are in your vehicle, stop. If possible, stay away from overhead power lines, and stay in your vehicle.

This third annual drill was first held in November 2008. Many schools, government offices and local workplaces will participate in this drill for 2010.

For more information about the drill and the Great Shakeout project, please visit For additional questions, contact the Dean of Instruction and Students Services at any SCE campus.
