Crowds learn how to survive at fair
Local businesses prepared booths to provide people with information on preparing for a disaster, along with what to do during and after one.
Leader Assistant Editor
An Emergency Preparedness Fair sponsored by Tremonton City and the Emergency Preparedness Committee was held last week at the Alice C. Harris Intermediate School. Guest speakers Mike Litchford and Jeff Johnson discussed ways to be prepared for a disaster, while many businesses displayed information and answered questions.
Litchford works on emergency preparedness in Deweyville City and has a passion for preparedness. He said, “It is up to you to be prepared. When the earth quits shaking do not expect anyone to come knocking on your door. The first and only person to take care of you is you.” After a major disaster it will be at least 72-hours before your local government or church can get things organized.
