Earthquake drill, CruzAlert planned for Thursday, Oct. 19

Earthquake preparedness

Monday's (Oct. 9) 4.1 tremor is a reminder that we should always be prepared for an earthquake. 

With this in mind, UC Santa Cruz CruzAlert registrants will receive a CruzAlert notification at 10:19 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19 as part of earthquake preparedness for the Great Shakeout.

When you receive this alert, we encourage you patricipate in an earthquake safety drill and drop, cover, and hold. To stop continued message delivery from this notice, please confirm receipt of the message.

Living and working in close proximity to earthquake fault zones exposes us to the hazards of ground shaking, earthquake-induced landslides, and liquefaction. Knowing these risks, we can mitigate the impact of these events by preparing our home and work for an effective earthquake response.

The Office of Emergency Services encourages students, staff, and faculty to review earthquake preparedness online and implement all safety measures possible.
