MUSC Great Southeast Shake Out

At 10:20 a.m. on October 20, 2016, MUSC will join the entire Southeast in practicing  DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON.  Once the ground starts shaking, you will only have seconds to protect yourself.   Do you know exactly what to do?   Your quake-safe solution should not involve a doorway, a triangle or running.  The good news is we have resources and guidance to help you prepare for the next big one!  Tell us how you participate by completing a short survey (Click Here)
