Great Southern California ShakeOut Drill
As part of our ongoing emergency preparedness efforts, John Wayne Airport participated in the 2009 Great Southern California ShakeOut Drill. At 10:30 in the morning on October 15, JWA employees joined millions of Californians who practiced the “Drop, Cover and Hold On” response to a major earthquake.
The ShakeOut Drill is part of the larger Golden Guardian Exercise Series, the nation’s largest state-sponsored emergency preparedness exercise endeavor, and is designed to raise awareness and test California’s ability to react and recover during a major earthquake. The Great American ShakeOut will be held statewide on the third Thursday of October each year.
