The Great Utah ShakeOut

Mark your calendars for April 15, 2021, for the ninth Great Utah ShakeOut!

You can still be counted in the 2020 ShakeOut. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups did not hold drills together. If social distancing requirements are relaxed later this year, you are still welcome to hold a drill and have it counted in the 2020 ShakeOut total. Just update your registration at ShakeOut.org/utah.

More than 1 million Utahns participated in 2019. You can 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, 7.6 million 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.
