The Great Yukon ShakeOut

Thanks to all Yukoners who participated in the Great Yukon ShakeOut earthquake drill and also to those who shared their photos of their ShakeOut drills. The response was fantastic and we hope you continue regular drills throughout the year. Congrats to the winners:


If you participated on October 16 and did not register, it's not too late! If you did not participate, you can also still register and hold your drill on any day until the end of the year. Head to the Great Yukon ShakeOut registration page.

Everyone, everywhere, should know how to protect themselves in an earthquake. Even if earthquakes are rare where you live, they may happen where you or your family travel. Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills are an annual opportunity for people in homes, schools, and organizations to practice what to do during earthquakes, and to improve preparedness.
