LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Clark County School District Thursday partnered with local fire departments and Clark County's Office of Emergency Management to educate students about earthquake safety during the Great Nevada ShakeOut drill.

Veterans Tribute Career and Technical Academy (VTCTA), a District magnet school that trains students in emergency medical and law enforcement careers, was the host site for the drill.

VTCTA's Emergency Medical Services (EMS) students were selected because of their first responder education to demonstrate the drill and illustrate how to remain calm and follow directions during an earthquake.

EMS students performed the "drop, cover and hold on" technique, part of the Great Nevada ShakeOut's campaign to stay safe during an earthquake. During the drill, students dropped to the floor, took cover under desks and tables and held on to illustrate the proper steps to take during an earthquake.
