Emergencies can happen anywhere at anytime. In most cases, there is little we can do to stop them from happening. However, through thoughtful preparation we can limit the damage and disruption they will have on individual lives and communities. As a leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints you will be involved in the response efforts throughout your area. This guide will direct you on where to start with your emergency preparations. 

1.  Encourage individual and family preparedness

  • Family emergency plan, emergency kits, three month and longer-term food supplies
  • Financial preparedness, including insurance

  • Personal and family safety

2.  Encourage missions, stakes, and wards to prepare emergency response plans

3.  Keep contact information current

  • Area, mission, and stake leaders

  • Church Departments

  • LDS.org Maps

4.  Participate with government and other emergency response organizations
