Les exercices "Shake Out" se tiendront, dans plusieurs États, le 17 octobre prochain

Comme à chaque année, les simulations à des méga-séismes se déroulent dans tous les États américains.  Ces exercices impliquent les services d'urgence, les communautés, les entreprises et les écoles.

J'ai reçu ce courriel, ce matin, du groupe Safe Sound Family:


I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! In light of the upcoming “Great ShakeOut” Earthquake Drill (on Oct 17), I’m creating a corresponding lesson plan series for elementary school students. The drill currently only takes place in 10 states, so I’m trying to spread the word to encourage others to join in.

In order to write this lesson plan, I’ve been visiting several different earthquake- and disaster-related sites - and yours was one of them. When I was on your site, I noticed that you’ve got a link to a page on the US Geological Survey site:, that's no longer working and for which I can’t find an exact replacement. 

However, I thought the main earthquake resource page on the USGS site would work: I found that broken link on this page of your site:

I also wanted to pass a few resources along to you. Each would complement the USGS site, and would offer additional information and tips to your visitors on this important, potentially harmful, topic. 

Disaster Recovery Training (Free) 

A Guide to Keeping Your Family Safe During an Earthquake 
The Earthquake Recovery Resource Guide 

Earthquake Preparedness Drills 

If you agree that these would be a good fit for your site, they are yours to add.

Thank you for your time, and be safe!
