On October 17th Caltech will be participating in the Great California ShakeOut earthquake drill. At 10:17am a Caltech Alert will let everyone know it's time to "Drop, Cover, and Hold On!" Once you've practiced your earthquake procedures, come over to Avery Courtyard between 11am – 1pm, for our annual Personal Preparedness Fair. In addition to getting great information from vendors and campus resources, there will be presentations and consults from experts on earthquake insurance, seismic bracing, and self-defense.
