Emergency Prepardness Month
September is Emergency Preparedness Month in Utah, so we wanted to share some tips on how you can help make sure your family is prepared in the event of a natural disaster. Since homes in Daybreak have basements, and many have underporch storage, food storage is more convenient here in Utah. We also have garages for extra storage and so this gives options for storing large barrels of water, and other bulk foods like wheat, etc. In other bigger cities it is sometimes difficult to store extra food due to lack of space in a small apartment.
We have also been blessed in Utah that we have not had natural disasters to the extent of some other states and countries around the world. There have however been fires, mudslides, flashfloods, and issues with communities being without water, etc. So it is important to have a plan in place and be prepared in the event of an emergency. Making preparations now and being organized will help not only to give piece of mind but will help should you need to quickly put your plan into action.
As part of Emergency Preparedness Month, you can meet some of Utah's amazing first responders, disaster experts and emergency preparedness suppliers. Get all the details at: Natural History Museum of Utah's free Preparedness Fair.

ACTIONS TO PREPARE:
These are just a few ideas of how you can help prepare your household and family to be ready in case of an emergency. Don’t be overwhelmed. Set a goal and work on being prepared over time. Many people budget a certain amount of money to use towards food storage each year. Over time you become more and more ready. Even the little preparations add up!
