City of Pocatello to Join in 2016 Great ShakeOut

Pocatello ShakeOut

The employees of the City of Pocatello will be joining with more than 18 million people across the nation for a simulated earthquake. Thursday, October 20 at 10:20 a.m. City staff will take part in the 2016 Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill. The exercise will feature a mock evacuation of City Hall and the building will be closed for roughly 10 minutes while the drill is being conducted. No citizens will be allowed in City Hall until the ShakeOut has ended. Citizens conducting business at the time of the drill will be escorted out of City Hall, just like a real emergency and then brought back in after the drill has ended. “Around 200 people will be in City Hall for the mock evacuation and the ShakeOut is an opportunity to find out how things could proceed in the event of a real emergency,” said Assistant Chief Tom Sanford with the Pocatello Fire Department. “Whether or not you or your organization are participating in the ShakeOut, now is a great time to review your emergency plans and what steps you need to take to stay safe in an earthquake or other type of disaster.” For more information on the ShakeOut drill and what to do if you find yourself in an earthquake, visit
