SALT LAKE CITY, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brad Stewart, president and co-founder of GOFoods Global, the nation's category creator in premium-quality food reserves and shelf-life nutrition, encourages families everywhere to support the Great Utah ShakeOut drill scheduled for 10:15 AM on Tuesday, April 17, 2012.
According to Brad Stewart, the www.shakeout.org/utah website suggests that as part of the preparedness drill, people should stop wherever they are and "Drop, Cover, and Hold On!" as if there were a major earthquake occurring at that very moment.
"GOFoods shares the main goal of the ShakeOut, which is to help Utah families get prepared for major earthquakes," said Brad Stewart. "GOFoods Global also believes in having a family food supply ready, not only for major earthquakes and other natural disasters but also for economic shortages and trials."
The ShakeOut is an opportunity for people to practice how to protect themselves during earthquakes. Official rescue teams who have been dispatched to the scene of earthquakes and other disasters around the world continue to advocate use of the internationally recognized "Drop, Cover and Hold On" protocol to protect lives during earthquakes:
- DROP to the ground (before the earthquake drops you!),
- Take COVER by getting under a sturdy desk or table, and
- HOLD ON to it until the shaking stops.
If there isn't a table or desk near you, drop to the ground in an inside corner of the building and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms. Do not try to run to another room just to get under a table. GOFoods Global recommends learning about additional ShakeOut-suggested advice on www.earthquakecountry.info, which includes tips for what to do in an earthquake based on location.
GOFoods encourages conversation on their Facebook page www.facebook.com/gofoods to share how you and your family used the Great Utah ShakeOut as an opportunity to learn what to do before, during, and after an earthquake.
