72 Hour Kits

I hope everyone has their 72 hour kits ready.  I am in the process of gathering everything up and putting it in one location.  With the rise in snow pack levels on the North side of the Uintas and no warm up in the near future.  My family is preparing for the worst case scenario.  Any of you that read this blog and live on the lower levels of the valley or near the river should be preparing also.  As of this morning, April 14 2011, the snow pack level is at 150% of normal.  Last year at this time of year, the snow pack level was at 50%.  I also heard from one of our ward members that the sheep lane up in Hillard still has approximately 6 feet of snow.  Normally that would be melted off by now.  But if it keeps snowing and snowing and snowing...... well it just isn't looking good.

So with that said, I am asking everyone to get their 72 hours kits ready.  Make sure your neighbors are prepared, too.  Make sure you are registered with the CodeRED system with the county.

If you need another copy of the 72 hour kit notes, please let me know and I can email them to you.  

If you have any other questions or concerns about the possible flooding issue, please contact Brian Woodward at 307-679-1191.  He is our ward Emergency Preparedness Specialist.
