Day 28: Shake, Shake, EQ

Hey Everyone, Its Eric from the 30 Days Gang, here with your day 28 challenge. As National Preparedness Month comes to a close, it marks almost the kick-off for shake out month where we practice our earthquake safety. We also want to talk about ShakeAlerts.. the Earthquake Early Warning Systems that have rolled out in the past couple years in some states.

There are two ways to receive the early warning alerts now that the ShakeAlert system is live: The Wireless Emergency Alert system and your phone’s built-in software.

While most phones already have “Emergency Alerts” or “Public Safety” alerts already turned on, we are asking the public to check their mobile phone to see if Wireless Emergency Alerts are turned on.
