"Porta Potty" kit

- 5 gallon bucket with carry handle
- Seat with lid (can be purchased at Emergency Essentials or Ace Hardware)
- Lots of heavy duty plastic bags to line bucket
- 7-8 rolls of toilet paper (remove the cardboard center and wrap individually in plastic wrap or in a ziplock bag
- Hand wipes
- 1 liter bottle of cat litter (kitty litter absords the droppings and keeps the smell down)
- 1 roll of paper towels
- A pack of enzyme 300 deodorizer (optional)
- Bottle of spray disinfectant (optional)

All of these things should fit in the bucket so it is convenient to carry.  Additional things can be added as needs and room allows (additional sanitation options, sanitary supplies for women, etc.)

*Emergency Essentials also offers a "starter kit" which includes the bucket, seat and 2 enzyme packs.

While the skies are clear

"Plan to build up your food supply just as you would a savings account ... we urge you to do this prayerfully and DO IT NOW."
                     -- Ezra Taft Benson (General Conference, October 1980) (emphasis added)

"Prepare ye, prepare ye for that which is to come, for the Lord is nigh."
                     -- D&C 1:12

Sometimes I sit and ponder ... we have been warned for how long?  There are how many scriptures that tell of Christ's coming?  What if President Monson said that the Savior was coming on ______, 2010?  What would you change?  Would your summer plans change?  Would you panic or get to work?  I would like to think that we would get to work.  The time has COME to get to WORK.

"The kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God on the earth will be combined together at Christ's coming - and that time is not far distant.  How I wish we could get the vision of this work, the genius of it, and realize the nearness of that great event.  I am sure it would have a sobering effect upon us if we realized what is before us."
                    -- Gordon B. Hinckley (General Conference, October 1992)

Soon the bride groom will be here, will we be ready?

"I am suggesting that the time HAS COME to get our houses in order."
                     -- Gordon B. Hinckley (General Conference, October 1998)(emphasis added)

Westpoint City and Clearfield City have CERT classes beginning March 2nd.

Westpoints cost is $25.00, register at the city building. This is a 5 session class, Tuesday, Thursday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. 

Clearfields cost is $47.00, register at the city building by February 19th.  This class is 6-7 classes and is held each Tuesday evening at 6:30.

In comparing what I know of the two (my parents attended Wespoint's and I attended Clearfield's), the same information is covered at both.  I believe there was more hands on training with Clearfield and we received more supplies, etc. for our backpacks, but I think both classes are great.  At both classes you will receive a backpack, vest and hardhat.

Truly I don't think it matters which one you go to - just GO.
