Shelter in an Emergency

We don't often think about what we would need for shelter in an emergency, and that is part of the problem.  Most of the thought about this needs to happen BEFORE an emergency!   Check out the Stake Newsletter this month for information about how to:

1. Prepare your home for an emergency

2. Prepare your family for an emergency

3. Think about what you would do to shelter in place

One of the main things you need to do before facing a problem is learn how to turn off your gas, electricity and water.  Make sure to have instructions taped to the shut off locations, as well as any tools.  You can find information from FEMA here:

You should also know basics for preparing  your home for an earthquake.  Learn more here:
