MTECH will join more than 700,000 Utahns by participating in a statewide earthquake drill Thursday, April 18, 2019, for the annual Great Utah ShakeOut. The goal of the Great ShakeOut is not only to teach people how to protect themselves during the quake by taking cover under a sturdy object but also to become more mindful of habits they can develop to be more prepared. All of us know what to do in a fire, but we’re still learning about how to react in an earthquake. This annual initiative helps people and organizations practice how to protect themselves in the event of a major earthquake.
