Our Prophets teach us that we need to be prepared for not if,
but when disaster strikes. I have put together some information
to help you to prepare for disaster. There is also classes
available once a month to help you learn more on how to better
prepare yourself for emergency situations. Here is what the
church has to say about Emergency Preparation:


We should be prepared for the future. Only preparation, both
spiritual and temporal, can dispel fear. Individual members and
families should prepare to be as self-reliant as possible in times
of personal or widespread emergency.

President Gordon B. Hinckley has suggested "that the time has
come to get our houses in order. . . . There is a portent of
stormy weather ahead to which we had better give heed" (in
Conference Report, Oct. 1998, 70; or Ensign, Nov. 1998, 53).

The primary responsibility to prepare for and respond to
emergencies rests with individual members and families. To
help, Church leaders have counseled families to:

  • Prepare spiritually through fasting, family and personal
    prayer, family home evening, and honoring their
    covenants.

  • Prepare financially by staying out of debt, saving for the
    future, and obtaining insurance if possible.

  •   * Families should start by having a basic supply of food
    and water and some money in saving.

  • Prepare for home and natural disasters by having certain
    basic emergency and first aid supplies available in one
place in your home for quick and easy access.

  • Maintain physical health by practicing wise eating habits,
    observing the Word of Wisdom, and exercising regularly.
