For weeks, we've been posting updates on this blog on the Great Central U.S. ShakeOut, which is now only three days away.
Today, we’re excited to share with you where some of our FEMA senior leaders, and other officials from across the administration, plan to be on Thursday, to take part in the ShakeOut.
Secretary Janet Napolitano, along with Education Secretary Arne Duncan, will be traveling to St. Louis, to join Governor Nixon, our Regional Administrator, Beth Freeman, and other state and local officials for a ShakeOut drill at Carnahan High School of the Future.
Our Deputy Administrators, Rich Serino and Tim Manning, will join elementary schools in Georgia and Oklahoma, respectively, for their ShakeOut Drills. Rich will join students at Milford Elementary School in Marietta, Georgia, and Tim will join students at Jones Elementary School in Jones, Oklahoma.
And they’re not alone. Over the next few days, our Regional Administrators, staff and other workers across the DHS and federal families will be some of the millions of Americans participating in the drill. To date, over 2.7 million people have signed up, including over 2,016 schools, 268 businesses, and 611 local government agencies.
Let us know how you plan to join in the ShakeOut in the comments below.
