We’re excited to tell you that The Ready Store will be participating in the Great Utah ShakeOut on April 17th at 10:15 am!
The ShakeOut is a state-wide earthquake drill planned to help businesses, organizations, families and individuals prepare for an earthquake in Utah!
Since The Ready Store’s headquarters are in Utah, we have signed up to participate next Tuesday! We will be participating with over 850,000 other participants, businesses, organizations, universities and more!
On Feb. 7, 2012, nine states in the Midwest participated in one of the largest earthquake drills ever in the area. Over 2.4 million people registered for the event in Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi.
Similar drills have occurred in other areas of the United States. Now, the ShakeOut drills are spreading across the nation to states like Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. They also have drills planned internationally in Tokyo, New Zealand, British Columbia and more!
Here is a video that Be Ready Utah put together for the event. The video explains the effects of the earthquake would have on the state of Utah.
If you are a Utah resident and would like to participate in the drill, visit Shakeout.org/Utah to register.
They also supply videos, manuals and other resources that you can use to prepare and train those around you!
