The Great Utah ShakeOut is happening today, April 17.
The event includes participating homes, businesses, schools and other public spaces throughout the state at 10:15a.m.
Last year, over 900,000 individuals participated.
It's sponsored by Daily Bread for the second year, and is meant to educate Utahns on how best to react during and after a substantial earthquake.
The inevitable and substantial quakes predicted for the region means all citizens need to know what to do when recovery begins. The Wasatch Fault has a major earthquake about every 350 years, with the last quake being just over 350 years ago.
For those participating on April 17 at 10:15 a.m. MDT, they will need to do a ‘drop, cover and hold-on’ during the drill for one minute. Then, when the “shaking” stops, review their emergency plan, emergency kits and supplies and conduct a home hazard hunt.
