Illinois Emergency Management Agency Spreads Earthquake Preparedness Information

Did you know that Illinois is flanked on its western and eastern borders by two active seismic zones: the New Madrid Seismic Zone and the Wabash Valley Seismic Zone? The Illinois Emergency Management Agency encourages people to learn how to “Drop, Cover and Hold On” to prevent injury during an earthquake. If you find yourself indoors during an earthquake, drop down to the floor; take cover under a sturdy desk, table or other furniture; and hold on to that object and be prepared to move with it until the shaking ends. Most casualties result from falling objects and debris caused by the earth shaking. For more preparedness information, visit IEMA’s website.
