Full Description:
On the Marin County web site, http://www.co.marin.ca.us/
see Emergency Drill under Notices. It is also on the Marin County Sheriff's Department home page, http://www.marinsheriff.org under News & Events.

We will be holding the ShakeOut throughout the Marin Civic Center, including county library, the county jail and the Marin Superior Court. This drill is the first time the court has participated in an emergency readiness activity at the same time as the rest of the Civic Center.

There are 1100 employees who work in the Civic Center. We anticipate 300 members of the public will be here, including a number of prospective jurors.

The drill will result in 1400 people learning what to do in an earthquake: Drop, Cover, and Hold On!
