National Preparedness Month Continues Through September

Many Utah families have experienced emergencies and disasters with flooding, wildfires, power outages and severe weather. These unfortunate events often happen suddenly so it’s important to plan before the next emergency or disaster happens.

Several local public and private organizations have teamed up with Be Ready Utah’s exhibit to help Utahns become better prepared during National Preparedness Month.
