October 13, 2023 ·

MALIBU—The city of Malibu will participate in the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” for the Great ShakeOut, the world’s largest simultaneous earthquake preparedness drill on Thursday, October 19, at 10:19 a.m.

The public is encouraged to join the exercise in person at Malibu City Hall or conduct the drill independently, at their home, business, school, house of worship or community-based organization. Anyone at Malibu City Hall at the time of the event is asked to join the city staff for the drill and “Drop Cover and Hold On” which is the safest immediate response to an earthquake.

“A major earthquake can strike at any time and would have severe impacts to Malibu’s community, homes, infrastructure, daily lives and economy. Everyone in Malibu should be prepared for an earthquake and its aftermath, and have emergency plans and supplies to last for several days, including food, water, first aid, and medications – don’t forget your pets,” the city of Malibu indicated in a statement.
