On October 18, at 10:18 a.m., Pasadena City College will join colleges, K-12 schools, and other civic institutions around California to take part in the Great California ShakeOut.

This emergency safety drill is designed to help the college community better prepare for an earthquake. The drill will consist of recognizing how you would best protect yourself in your immediate environment by following the recommended steps of Drop! Cover!, and Hold On! These steps should be practiced during the drill at PCC, CEC/Foothill Campus, Rosemead, and the Child Development Center.

The drill will be followed by a complete evacuation of all rooms and buildings at each of the campuses and CDC. Once the all clear signal is given, everyone will be allowed back into the buildings.

For more information on evacuation locations on PCC's various campus, visit our Police and College Safety page.

More information on the procedure to follow in the event of an earthquake is available on a video produced by the ShakeOut organization. Interested parties may also contact Sgt. Bill Abernathie, Campus Police at (626) 585-7484.
