The Big Shaker is Coming to Seattle in September

Jul 06, 2021

The Big Shaker is coming to Seattle for National Preparedness Month! If you have never experienced an earthquake, this is the best simulator out there, to learn what it will feel like and how you can take steps to mitigate damage and risk to your loved ones and valuables.

I believe so strongly in this educational earthquake simulator, that I took my son out of school early, when the City of Seattle exhibited the Shaker at Seattle Central. My son, who was 9 years old then, had yet to experience an earthquake. I wanted him to know what it would feel like and show how important it is to know what to do during and after an earthquake.

I remember when we approached the Big Shaker, he stated that he didn't want to do it and I was not giving in on this one. I was able to convince him and he then participated. Afterwards, he walked walked away knowing that he could survive an earthquake. Which is invaluable. He was even smiling, as he thought it was pretty fun! The truck will be here from September 16th through the twenty-seventh. There are limited spots still available. If you are planning to educate your family or your colleagues about earthquake preparedness measures this is definitely a great resource for you.

Approximately 50 people can go through the Shaker in an hour and you can also receive a 25% discount on their emergency kits!
