City of St. Robert employees participated in the Great ShakeOut Drill at City Hall.
The Great Central U.S. Shakeout is an eight-state drill spanning much of the central United States. The purpose of the Shakeout is to help people and local organizations practice response times and procedures and be prepared for major earthquakes.
2011 was the first year of The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut, a drill designed to educate the public about how to protect themselves during a large earthquake. It was the largest earthquake drill to ever take place in the Central U.S. with more than 3 million registered participants.
The drill took place exactly at 10:15 a.m. on Feb. 7, 2012, in St. Robert. The Fire Department responded non emergency to the City Hall during this time to participate. Emergency personnel arrived on scene as if they were in rescue mode and to set up an E.O.C.
