The Great Utah ShakeOut

Mark your calendars for April 21, 2022, for the eleventh Great Utah ShakeOut!

The 10th anniversary of the annual Drop, Cover, and Hold on drill is only three weeks away. It’s not too late to register 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 Be Ready Utah program. You can also download your own banners to display on your website, blog or Facebook page from the Resources section of the site.

If you practiced Drop, Cover, and Hold on sometime in 2021 you can still be counted in the 2021 ShakeOut. Just update your registration at ShakeOut.org/utah.

Since 2012, we have had 8.3 million registrations in the Great Utah ShakeOut.

Want to know who’s participating? Here’s the list
