We often hear about how important it is to be prepared in the event of an emergency, such as a natural disaster, fire, or utility outage. Trying to be ready for anything and everything can feel overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know where to start.
A good starting point is to review recommendations from experienced emergency response resources. The sites linked below are full of helpful information, including checklists, templates, and videos. Once you are aware of recommendations, take a first step to preparedness, or advance what you already have in place. Something that everyone can do is make a plan. You can also start with gaining useful supplies and skills for the immediate disaster response, such as water storage, 72-hour kits, or CPR/first aid training. Be Ready Utah has a checklist of once per week tasks for preparedness basics in 52 weeks.
