USU Extension Sponsors Preparedness Class
LOGAN, UT – September is National Preparedness Month, and Utah State University Extension in Salt Lake County will present “Preparing Your Important Papers for Emergencies” on Monday, Sept. 17, from noon to 1 p.m. at the Salt Lake County Government Center, 2001 S. State Street, room S-1010.
According to Marilyn Albertson, USU Extension family and consumer sciences associate professor, it is not only a natural disaster that can constitute an emergency. The death of a family member, financial emergencies and illness are just some of life’s events when important papers are needed.
Albertson will teach the course that focuses on helping participants create a “grab and go” kit. These kits will include documents and information that should be gathered before an emergency arises. She will discuss ways to store it for easy access and help participants decide what to take with them if they need to evacuate quickly.
The class is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Participants are invited to bring lunch as they listen to the presentation.
