Great Utah ShakeOut 2021

Prepare to duck, cover, and hold on! The Great ShakeOut is coming to UVU.

What? It’s an annual statewide earthquake preparedness drill held by the state of Utah to practice earthquake safety protocol. A year ago, we experienced an earthquake that reminded everyone that such events are a reality in our area. At UVU, we want to be prepared.

When? April 15, 2021, at approximately 10 a.m.

How? If on campus, you will hear an overhead announcement. The UVU community will also receive texts and a warning on computer screens that will remind you to take protective actions as if there were an earthquake. This year, UVU employees in Facilities will also perform post-earthquake building assessment training. They will check buildings looking for structural damage as if there had been real shaking.

Please join us in taking the protective actions of duck, cover, and hold on during the Great ShakeOut.

Thank you!
