SEMA has produced a three minute video showing a fourth grade class taking part in a “Drop, Cover, Hold On” drill.

It can be viewed at SEMA’s Earthquake Preparedness web page:

Then in May, officials throughout Missouri will be part of the largest ever national level exercise, focusuing on a coordinated response to a 7.7 magnitude New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquake.

From May 16-20 national, state, and local responders will simulate a coordinated response to such a quake and the resource needs that would follow in the aftermath, including patient care, communications, transportation and logistics.

There will also be a series of earthquake awareness public education events, including in St. Louis University on Feb. 11.

The New Madrid Bicentennical Kickoff, part of a seminar entitled ”Earthquakes: Mean Business”, will be held from 8:30 am-5:30 pm at the Busch Student Center.

it's an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” – Patrick Henry
