Many Canyons District schools are participating in the 2013 Great Utah Shakeout
The second-annual statewide earthquake safety drill will be Wednesday, April 17, at 10:15 a.m. At that time, those participating will “drop, cover and hold on” as if an earthquake of great magnitude had hit the Wasatch Front.
The mock disaster will test the preparedness of schools, businesses, hospitals, city governments and families in case of an earthquake. The Great Utah Shakeout is sponsored by FEMA Region VIII, Emergency Essentials, Wal-Mart, Utah Disaster Kleenup, Deseret News, dailybread.com and the Enterprise Business Journal.
