What is the Rocky Mountain ShakeOut?
A simple earthquake drill that everyone can do by dropping, covering, and holding on. Last year, over 19.4 million people participated in ShakeOut drills across the globe.
This year, Montana has partnered with Wyoming and Colorado to host the first ever Great Rocky Mountain ShakeOut. So far, there are over 34,000 registrants in the region!
