Ready Your Business

When we think about emergency preparedness, we often do things like get our food storage in order, put shoes and a flashlight by our bed, and choose an escape route out of the house in case of a fire. But where do you spend the majority of your day? For a lot of us, we spend it at work! How prepared are you for an emergency if something happened at work? Just like we need to have a plan for our families, we need to have a plan for emergencies at work!

It's always a good idea to have an emergency kit in your car, as well as some basic essentials at your desk. Some things to keep at your desk might include a flashlight, water bottles, dry foods (fruit, jerky, cookies), walking shoes, essential medications, dust mask, and a basic first aid kit. Talk to your employer to learn more about your work's emergency plans, if you aren't already informed about them.

If you own a business, Be Ready Utah and the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce are hosting a FREE workshop on June 22nd about basic business continuity planning to be prepared for any hardship. For more details, go to www.BeReadyUtah.gov. Wherever you end up spending your day, make sure you are prepared for whatever emergency might come your way!
