At 10:17 a.m. on Oct. 17th, BCS and thousands of people participated in the Great NorthEast ShakeOut, the region’s largest earthquake drill ever! All faith-based organizations were encouraged to participate in the drill to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On”. This was a chance to practice how to protect ourselves and become prepared to prevent a major earthquake from becoming a catastrophe when there may only be seconds to protect ourselves in an earthquake before strong shaking knocks us down, or something falls on us. Millions of people have participated in these drills since 2008 which are held on the third Thursday of October each year.
