Drop, Cover, and Hold On for the Great Nevada ShakeOut

Earthquakes can happen at any time, so it is critical that you know exactly what to do when one strikes. University Police Services wants you to be ready.

At exactly, 10:21 a.m. on Oct. 21, all University Police Services’ campuses will be participating in the Great Nevada ShakeOut. Participants are instructed to drop to the ground, take cover, and hold on for one minute.

An emergency alert will sound via multiple platforms to signify the start of the drill. It is important to note that this alert is only a practice drill and not an actual emergency.

Download the RebelSAFE app today to receive push notifications.

We want you to be an example and motivate others on how to be better prepared to survive and quickly recover. Snap a photo of you and your co-workers practicing drop, cover, and hold on – and share it #UPDShakeout on social media.
