ReNew is committed to safety and we proudly will be participating in the ShakOut drills for the safety and wellbeing of all our employees and residents.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:18 a.m. on October 18* during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills, which began in California in 2008.

Participating is a great way for your family or organization to be prepared to survive and recover quickly from big earthquakes– wherever you live, work, or travel. ShakeOut is also a major activity of America’s PrepareAthon!  For more information or to find out how your organization can participate in the Great Shakeout in your area visit www.shakeout.org.  Stay prepared and safe California!

It’s that time of the year again… to further enhance our Disaster Preparedness and Response training… we will participate in the upcoming ‘Shake Out’ Drill which will be conducted across the United States on Thursday, 10/18/2018 at 10:18am.
