Did you Drop, Cover, and Hold on for the annual Great BC ShakeOut?

The Great BC ShakeOut is an annual province-wide earthquake drill for everyone to practice how to protect themselves and to be better prepared in the event of an earthquake. Thank you to everyone who took part in the earthquake drill and participated in the events!

UBC Alert

As part of ShakeOut, UBC was also testing its emergency notification system, UBC Alert. Did you get the test notification?

A reminder to:

  • Update your contact information on Workday (for faculty and staff) and Student Service Centre (for students) to ensure you receive the latest information in urgent situations through UBC Alert.
  • Download the UBC Safe Vancouver app for direct access to campus safety resources, and turn on push notifications to receive timely alerts and notifications.

Share your best ‘Drop, Cover and Hold on’

Just for fun, here are some of our teams from UBC Facilities and Safety & Risk Services demonstrating their Drop, Cover and Hold on! (Please note that not all of them are done correctly!)

If you have photos of your own, we encourage you to share them too, and tag @ShakeoutBC, @ubc on Twitter and @universityofbc on Instagram! Thank you for your participation. We all have a role in protecting ourselves and making our campus safe.
