Earthquake preparedness

On October 19, 2017 at 10:19 am, DVC will participate in The Great Shake Out. This nationwide event provides an opportunity for Diablo Valley College to test our level of readiness in the event of an earthquake or other catastrophic event.

The event is an ideal time to:

  • Create or update disaster supply kits
  • Secure furniture, heavy objects, wall hangings, etc. to prevent damage and injury
  • Identify building evacuation routes
  • Activate Emergency Operations Centers
  • Test communications plans
  • Simulate emergency response procedures
  • Conduct table top exercises
