“Great ShakeOut” at DLA Distribution Hill reinforces emergency preparedness
HILL, Utah —
In late April, the Utah Division of Emergency Management conducted the Great Utah ShakeOut, an emergency drill to exercise the potential of a 7.5-magnitued earthquake anticipated for the Wasatch Front. In connection with the Great Utah ShakeOut, Hill Air Force Base and Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Hill conducted an “exercise week,” with drills practicing an increase to the Force Protection Conditions, shelter-in-place, active shooter scenarios, and additional natural and man-made disaster scenarios facing those who live and work within the area.
