 The Movers and Shakers program consists of a 22-minute professionally produced video in sit-com format, which identifies home hazards and teaches children how they can be mitigated. The video is complemented by a sophisticated package of teaching aids which can be used to instruct the children in the classroom. It is a joint effort of State Farm, the Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC), the National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the National Coordinating Council of Emergency Managers.
 One-on-One Interviews
 Reporters interested in the earthquake threat faced by Seattle and its schoolchildren should the event occur during the school day, may conduct one-on-one interviews with some of those present who have expertise in the field.
 Free Distribution to Washington Schools
 State Farm will provide free copies of the program to any school in Seattle, Tacoma, or elsewhere in the state of Washington that requests one.
