Family Emergency Plan

"Before a disaster, men and women will make a choice.  They will choose to be victims of the disaster or victors over the disaster.

One choice requires no action whatsoever and ends in despair.  The other requires preparatory action but results in safety, refuge and peace of mind."

E. Tal Ehlers, MEP - Uintah County Emergency Manager
