2012 Great Utah Shake Out

Article Published 04/11/2012

Layton - April 11, 2012

All Layton City Departments will be participating in the Great Utah Shake Out on April 17, 2012 to help us better prepare for a disaster. We have prepared a scenario that will require a response from all City departments, but will have minimal impact on our necessary daily operations.

Your participation in the Great Utah Shake Out and other emergency preparedness programs is vital to the preparedness of our community. We would encourage each person, family, neighborhood, business, church and other various organizations throughout our community to take time to assess, plan and prepare for disasters that will directly affect each of us. What we do now, before a big earthquake, will determine what our lives will be like afterwards. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do I know exactly what to do the moment the ground starts shaking?
  • Does my family know where to meet in the event we are separated?
  • Do I feel confident in my ability to care for those around me in the event of a major natural or manmade disaster?

We encourage you to take the opportunity to research the information on the and websites and gather the information that pertains to your situation and formulate your plans. REMEMBER….MAKE A PLAN. GET A KIT. BE INFORMED. GET INVOLVED….with the Great Utah Shake Out on April 17, 2012.
