Are You Prepared?

The South Franklin Community Center paired up with United Way of Utah County and the American Red Cross this past weekend to put on an Emergency Preparedness Fair to remember! Americorps VISTA member George VanDeWater gave an excellent presentation on natural disasters that could happen here in Utah County, misconceptions people may have about being prepared, and how to better equip your home and family members for the unexpected. If you have any questions about how to better prepare for emergencies, George is your man! The American Red Cross gave out tons of info about First Aid, CPR, and resources in the community that our useful when it comes to disasters. It was a great event overall. Thanks to those who attended and those who helped present!

George shows a community member what he puts in his "go bag".
What's a go bag? When there is an emergency, you grab the bag and go!

The American Red Cross was ready and willing to help community
members be more prepared

Sully Bryan explains to a community member how to help children understand the importance of being prepared. We still have more workbooks for children if anyone wants one!
