It's easy to forget that in Utah we live in earthquake country. This presentation will outline the practical steps water utilities can take to prepare for a seismic event. We will evaluate best practices to better respond to an event from an operational standpoint, including managing the safety and health of employees during and after an event.

We will also discuss the role of insurance and other funding resources, including FEMA and internal funds and how optimizing the use these resources can help an organization be more resilient to recover from a seismic event.
