Get Ready to ShakeOut!Pat Spellman
New Zealand ShakeOut, our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, is taking place on Thursday 18 October 2018 at 9:30 am*.
ShakeOut is held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake, Drop, Cover and Hold – and to practise a tsunami hīkoi (evacuation) if in a coastal area.
New Zealand ShakeOut was first held in 2012, and then again in 2015. Whether you’re doing the drill for the first time or you’ve done it before, taking part in New Zealand ShakeOut 2018 is as easy as 1-2-3!
