Millard County
Community  “Project SPLAT”
For the month of March 2010 your local CERT members are helping each community with Disaster Preparedness & Supplies that will help each residence of Millard County be ready when a disaster comes our way.

Project “SPLAT” stands for Store, Prepare, Learn, Assist, Train.
We will be bringing to you supplies, ideas and training we will be suggesting each month throughout the year.  You are welcome to submit ideas to the team for supplies and training which you may feel helpful for the community as well.

This month we suggest “ready to eat food” to have on hand for 1 month.
The following item ideas are for canned unless stated.

Safe Tip

Do not store valuables in your car, even in the trunk. Please lock your car and take your keys with you. Even though it is tempting to run your vehicle in the cold mornings, an unattended vehicle is an open invitation to a thief.
