ShakeOut is an annual earthquake drill and preparedness activity that promotes earthquake preparedness and safety. Originating in Southern California in 2008, ShakeOut has since expanded to other regions and countries around the world.

ShakeOut drills are designed to raise awareness about earthquake risks and encourage individuals, organizations, and communities to take proactive measures to reduce their vulnerability to earthquakes and their potential impact.

ShakeOut events typically occur on a specific day each year, usually in October, with participants ranging from schools and businesses to government agencies and households.
