Earthquake Victims Needed!

Earthquake Victims Needed!
Posted on 04/05/2013

Last year during ShakeOut, Cottonwood Heights participated by having city staff “drop, cover and hold on” during the earthquake drill and then setting up a mock Emergency Operations Center to test the preparedness skills of the staff and the city’s emergency communications volunteers.

This year, we are changing things up a little.


Cottonwood Heights is teaming up with the Red Cross to provide approximately 20 staff members and trained volunteers who will stage a mock disaster shelter at the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center on April 18. But there’s no point in opening a mock shelter if we don’t have any mock earthquake victims!

We need community members to pretend to be shelter clients at the rec center that day from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Everyone from families, school groups, and businesses is invited to participate.
