Businesses, religious organizations, neighborhoods, etc. are all parts of the community. When disasters strike, it is often individuals from these parts of the community that are able to respond first to help those in need. In order for groups of individuals and organizations to respond to needs in a safe and effective way, it is important to plan, prepare, and practice before a disaster occurs. This page provides materials to help leaders of organizations or individuals interested in helping their part of the community get started on these steps and includes links to resources with more specific information.
The Wasatch County Health Department supports efforts by organizations in our community to improve their ability to respond to disasters and other public health emergencies. Below are materials and links to help organizations prepare for an emergency.
