Why: Each year, the City of Bluffdale comes together to practice our emergency communications plan. On Saturday, April 17th around 9 AM-text your group leader that you are okay. This means that you can check-in even if you are out of town or at a soccer game! The group leader will then let your section leader know that you are okay. The section leader will run a message to the HAM Radio operator for your section (neighborhood) and they will report to City Hall.
If you need to know who to report to on Saturday, April 17th email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know who your section leader is.
Bluffdale City’s Emergency Management program is responsible for coordinating the resources from all levels of government and multiple volunteer organizations to assist the citizens of Bluffdale City from the effects of disasters.
The Emergency Management program supports the community before, during and after events and major disasters through mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery activities.
Our program consists of a part time Emergency Management Coordinator who serves as the city’s liaison on emergency preparedness, response and recovery, training programs and drills and exercises. The Emergency Management Coordinator will also operate the Emergency Coordination Center when necessary to manage the distribution of city services and resources to respond and recover from a disaster. The Emergency Program Manager works closely with the Fire Department, Police Department, Public Works and other City, County and State agencies.
The City has an Emergency Operations Plan and a Neighborhood Emergency Plan. There are multiple opportunities for community education such as CPR, CERT, Red Cross and FEMA training.
When disaster strikes, the time to prepare has passed. –Steven Cyros
