The Great Utah ShakeOut drill continued for volunteers on Wednesday in Sandy.

A point of distribution was set up at Lone Peak Park where volunteers passed out survival kits.  In the event of an earthquake, water, food and clothing would be available as part of the kits.

Volunteers said the drill went smoothly this morning, but they could improve on traffic control as people were coming through.  Most of the volunteers said they are ready at their own homes, they just want to make sure everyone else is ready as well.

"Just not enough hands to go around, so the more than we can help the first responders get ready for something like this, the more we are going to be able to help our neighbors when it happens," said Darlene Turner, volunteer.

At the drill on Wednesday, the volunteers set up tables with water and cars would swing through and pick up the supplies.
