Personal Preparedness
Being ready for a disaster or other public health emergency can be difficult.  It cannot be predicted when or where one of these events may occur; however, certain steps can be taken to be better prepared. 1) Assembling a disaster supply kit, 2) developing a personal and/or family disaster plan, and 3) staying informed of potential disasters are the key steps in preparing for emergency situations. During emergency situations, staying calm and using common sense are always the best defense.
Below are resources to help you take the key steps and become prepared. These resources include: "It's a Disaster" preparedness manual, Your Family Disaster Plan brochure, Your Family Disaster Supply Kit brochure, and more. For any additional information, please call the Wasatch County Health Department at 435-657-3302 or click on the links listed on the right side of this webpage.
