The Great Colorado ShakeOut 2022

2022-09-23 | Dr. John Hopkins

It’s coming up in less than four weeks! The Great Colorado ShakeOut is a public earthquake drill that takes place every year on the third Thursday of October across the state, the country, and the world. This year the official collective drill takes place Thursday, October 20th, 2022, at 10:20 AM (MDT) but you—as an individual, family, or organization— can design and plan an earthquake drill for any time of the year.

Would you like a single-person, 72-hour emergency supply kit? Register as an individual or family for The Great Colorado ShakeOut and you may get one one! We’ll be choosing two random Colorado registrants to receive supply kits on September 30th!!!
