There was a whole lot of shakin’ going on at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands on Sunday, Oct. 6.

In advance of the global Great ShakeOut drill set for Oct. 17, the museum offered tips and trips on the San Bernardino County Office of Emergency Services’ earthquake simulator.

“We certainly know in this area, especially with what happened up in Trona, that we’re always subject to earthquakes,” said museum director Melissa Russo, referring to the two big quakes that hit the desert community this summer.

Preparedness is key for anyone who lives in quake-prone areas, she said. “Getting it in the front of their minds so in that moment, we never know when it’s going to come, we build an instinct for what to do.”

Earthquake science and emergency preparedness demos also gave a jolt to the event, which included a blood drive and an opportunity to make clay fault art.

More than 50 million from Algeria to Venezuela are registered to participate in this year’s ShakeOut. The drills started in southern California in 2008. For more information go to
