Ross emphasized that in the event of a quake, city crews would need to focus on infrastructure, triage and food and water supplies.  Families should be prepared to take care of themselves and help their neighbors for 72 hours to a week.

DAVIS COUNTY — The real value that may come from The Great Utah ShakeOut will be in how well Davis County residents took to heart its lessons.

The shakeout, a statewide exercise to help Utahns prepare for an earthquake, occurred Tuesday morning at 10:15 a.m., with people in government, schools, businesses and homes dropping to their hands and knees, taking cover under a sturdy table and holding on for a minute.

In Davis County, a number of agencies used the drill to determine how effective various systems within their organizations would work in case of a disaster.

The Bountiful Police Department focused on its communications system, to see how well they would respond to emergency calls, and how they would communicate within the law enforcement community.
