Emergency Preparedness

1/31/2024

We are continuing our Emergency Preparedness classes.  Many who attended wanted to let their neighbors know about these excellent classes.  Bring a pen and 3 ring binder to put your packets in.   Everyone is invited to attend whatever classes you can make.  

Theresa Toone has 3 more classes on personal emergency preparedness at the Ogden Valley Library, 131 S 7400 E, in Huntsville, on Thursdays, February 1, 8, and 15th, at 7:00 PM.  We will do more than just learn how to prepare.   We will learn and set goals to accomplish emergency preparedness items each week.  Bring a pen and binder if you can.  Packets will be passed out and goals will be made each week.  This will cover food storage, 72 hour kits, sanitation, water storage, emergency evacuation, lighting, communication, etc.  While living in California, Theresa experienced several earthquakes and fires.  She even had to evacuate her home during one of the fires.  She has become an expert in preparing for these events.  This class will have a lot of information.  Any classes you can make will be very beneficial.   

On Thursday, March 14th, 7:00 PM, at the Ogden Valley Library, 131 S 7400 E, in Huntsville, Maralin Hoff, from the State of Utah Department of Public Safety, will give a presentation on Earthquake Safety.  This was rescheduled due to snowy weather in January.  She is the premier expert in Utah on Earthquake Safety and is known as the “Earthquake Lady”.  She has an excellent presentation with lots of information and demonstrations showing what we can do to be better prepared.   

The next round of Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) training should be coming up in April and May.  The following is a link to information about Weber County CERT.  https://www.webercountyutah.gov/sheriff/homeland/pdf/cert.brochure.weber.pdf
