"Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them" (Ezekiel 38:7).

September is National Preparedness Month. During this month the Union Park Stake would like to emphasize the importance of being prepared as families, wards, neighborhoods, and stake. We have been taught in the Doctrine & Covenants to “prepare every needful thing.” (D&C 109:8) This insightful scripture applies most certainly to the principle of emergency preparedness. Being prepared in the event of crisis or disaster will bring peace and comfort in a chaotic situation. The Union Park Stake will be providing information and events in the future to help us accomplish this goal to the best of our abilities.

Please take a moment and review your own family preparedness plan and use the resources listed here to help create or update your plan.

In updating the stake emergency plan, we are asking that all who would be willing, both members and our non-member neighbors who would like to participate, to fill out our Stake Preparedness Survey. Knowing the resources available will help improve the response to a crisis situation. Please follow the link below to fill out and submit the form online. Printed copies will be available from your ward emergency preparedness representative.
