New Zealand ShakeOut is a self-run earthquake drill.
DROP down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.
COVER your head and neck (or your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you).
HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.
New Zealand ShakeOut is our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi.
