Great Utah ShakeOut


Mark your calendars for April 20, 2017, for the sixth ShakeOut!

A record-breaking 1,004,593 Utahns participated this year! Gov. Gary Herbert challenged Utah to get 1 million Utahns participating for 2016. We succeeded! You succeeded! If you held a drill or plan to during 2016, you can still sign up your family, church group, business, school or workplace at ShakeOut.org/utah.  In the mean time, you can upload photos, stories or videos to the ShakeOut website by logging into your profile.

Take time to ramp up your preparedness by visiting our BeReadyUtah.gov program

Since 2012, millions of Utahns have participated in the Great Utah ShakeOut. You can also download your own banners to display on your website, blog or Facebook page from the Resources section of the site.
