Emergency Management

October 20th, 2022 is the GREAT WYOMING SHAKEOUT!

Held annually on the third Thursday in October, The Great ShakeOut is a self-led drill during which individuals, families, and organizations practice their earthquake response plans. At minimum, everyone should know and practice the safe response to an earthquake, which is to DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON.
