Drop, Cover and Hold On

Today, YHS joined millions of people worldwide for the Great ShakeOut.

October 17th is officially ShakeOut BC Day. At 10:17am (or in our case 10:25 due to recess) we practiced “drop, cover and hold on”.

This is one of 9 emergency drills that we have every year. As part of our emergency preparedness, every year we have six fire drills, one lockdown drill and two earthquake drills.
