Emergency Preparedness

What will you and your family do when a disaster strikes?

Emergencies and disasters strike quickly and without warning and can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. Whether faced with a family emergency or a regional disaster, the effort you’ve put into family preparedness and disaster planning will play a large role in how well you “survive” the event.

What can you do to prepare your family?

What would you do if basic services such as water, gas, electricity or telephones were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. Medical help may not arrive at all. 9-1-1 will be totally overwhelmed in a major disaster.

Everyone Should Have a Plan

Pandemic Influenza

Severe influenza pandemics represent one of the greatest potential threats to the public’s health.  Pandemic influenza refers to a worldwide epidemic due to a new, dramatically different strain of an infectious virus.  A pandemic or global epidemic is an outbreak of an infectious disease that affects people or animals over an extensive geographical area.

The Pandemic Influenza Response Plan for Central Utah Public Health Department provides guidance to public health – (CUPHD) and district partners regarding detection, response, and recovery from an influenza pandemic.  The Plan describes the unique challenges posed by a pandemic that may necessitate specific leadership decisions, response actions, and communications mechanisms.

Community organizations are invited to participate with us in preparing for a pandemic.  We exercise our Point Of Dispensing (POD) Plan every fall in the community as a drive-though flu clinic. You might have seen flyers or have heard us talk about out drive-though flu clinic. This allows us to give flu shots, work with community partners and to find gaps in our plans.  To participate in the next exercise, look for flyers on social media and other avenues.
