Here's Something To Think About...

Choose an emergency contact person outside your area, as it may be easier to call long distance after a local/regional emergency.

"Our intention is to make this an annual event..."

Infant CPR Training
Infant CPR Training
The Utah Foster Care Foundation hosted our first annual emergency preparedness fair on Saturday, September 22, 2007. There were 18 individuals who attended representing 11 families. Each of the attending families put together an emergency kit for their families, including the children in their care. The kits included many of the items suggested by the website and included items such as food, water, matches, flashlights, maps, hand warmers, first aid kits, etc... Most of the items for the kits were purchased with a grant from the Fieldstone Foundation. The maps that were included in the kits were donated by AAA of Northern California. Each family also received a guide to family emergency preparedness supplied by the Salt Lake Valley Health Department.

We also had a family/friends CPR class available taught by the Emergency Medical Training Council of Utah. Several of the attending families also participated in the adult and infant CPR training.

Our intention is to make this an annual event every September—with a goal of increasing attendance and preparedness every year.
