“An earthquake-awareness public service announcement created by Samuel Stucky of Bryan Station High School won the $1,000 grand prize in a contest sponsored by Kentucky’s Division of Emergency Management.
Samuel, a junior, noted that Kentucky sits near a major fault and that earthquakes can happen anytime. His main message was to be aware, be prepared, and have a plan. For instance, families should have an evacuation kit with appropriate supplies, and everyone should know the drill: Drop to the ground, cover one’s head, and hold on tight to lower the risk of injury or death.
The inaugural video contest was part of statewide efforts to inform, educate and prepare residents for an earthquake.”
