There are a many reasons to prepare for possible disasters in Lehi City. We live in a time where natural disasters are leaving thousands of people at the mercy of others to rely on during their great time of need. Being prepared for such an occasion can reduce the fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany disasters.
September is National Preparedness Month. The Emergency Management team will put out a newsletter with facts and tips on ways that you can help your family become more prepared for an emergency.
Week 1 – Disaster Preparedness
Week 2- Learning life-saving skills
One key aspect of being prepared is being informed. If we can’t reach you, we can’t alert you.

Each disaster has lasting effects, to both people and property. If a disaster occurs, local government and relief organizations will try to help, but you need to be prepared as well. Local responders may not be able to reach you immediately, or they may need to focus their efforts away from you. You should prepare to be self-sufficient for at least three days in the event of a disaster. This may mean providing for your own shelter, first aid, food, water, and sanitation.
Lehi City has published a guide to personal and family preparedness. View the guide online.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness. CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.
