Millions of people across California will take part in an annual earthquake preparedness drill.

Now in its fourth year, school children and office workers will practice basic quake survival skills by diving under their desks and holding onto their desks or chairs. Emergency responders and hospitals will stage search-and-rescue missions and mass casualty exercises.

Some 8 1/2 million people have signed up to participate in Thursday’s Great California ShakeOut.
