Be a Force of Nature During Severe Weather Preparedness Week
- Be Ready Utah will be posting specific preparedness tips on Twitter and Facebook this week using the hashtag #BeAForce.
- Families should prepare for all hazards. Tornadoes are possible in Utah. We have, on average, four tornadoes a year, in the Beehive State.
- Severe weather can cause both floods and fires nearly every year in the state.
- Families and businesses should make emergency plans, have emergency kits and stay informed about local hazards.
- That means that we pay attention to local news, that we consider buying weather radios, that we check weather conditions before we head out.
Please browse our site for more preparedness information about other hazards.
