Ready for an earthquake? Help is here

Laura Giles Herald CorrespondentMarch 3, 2019

A series of earthquakes recently rattled Utah County, but residents need not wonder how to be prepared or what to do if something more serious happens. Be Ready Utah has the answers.

Be Ready Utah, managed by the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Division of Emergency Management, is the state’s official emergency preparedness campaign

“Personal and family preparedness is the key to survival in, and in subsequent recovery from, emergencies and disasters. Increasing that preparedness statewide is our goal,” it reads on the campaign’s website, http://BeReadyUtah.gov.

In light of those recent earthquakes, residents might want to check out the earthquake section of the website. There, information can be found about what to do before, during and after an earthquake, which emergency supplies should be stored, how to secure furniture, organizing a neighborhood, tips for pets and other useful information.
