Uintah City Emergency Preparedness
Uintah City encourages all residents, businesses, and organizations within the City to become prepared in case of an emergency.
It's impossible to control the weather and stop catastrophes from happening. However, we can help educate families and communities on the vital steps for emergency preparedness so that everyone can minimize risks and be aware of the safe routes should an emergency take place.
Here is a link to an easy to read Emergency Prep Guide provided by the Safety, Health, & Consumer Council.
The City's Emergency Operations Plan, adopted March 2012, can provide additional useful information.
