EVSC schools joined more than 20 million people across the country today for the Great American ShakeOut.
It's a day set aside for individuals, businesses and schools to conduct earthquake drills.
At 10:17 local time, the Great American ShakeOut drill was happening simultaneously across the country. That includes a drop, take cover, and hold on exercise meant to minimize injuries.
After the drill, students conducted an earthquake evacuation, which is part of school procedure.
Keep in mind, earthquakes can spark fires, and if phone lines are down, evacuating may be the only option schools have. Plus, Principal Doug Mills says it gives the kids an idea of what to expect.
"So that kids know what the protocols are and how to get out of the building," said Mills. "But I think the other thing is to do the drills so that kids don't panic when we actually have an emergency situation," he said. "We try to make our drills fun. So it's part of just what we do, it's not a scary thing. So if we did have an actual event the kids could remain as calm as possible."
The Department of Homeland Security was also there to talk with the kids about what to do. They say a lot of the same preparations for an earthquake apply to other severe weather in Indiana, like tornadoes and winter storms.
