  5. 5. Water Storage ● Water storage is a focus for the Mapleton North Stake for 2010 – minimum 2 weeks – 14 days x 1 gal/person/day = 14 gal/person – This is MINIMUM reserve – not used until all other sources are exhausted – Suggest we have at least two 55 gal drums/family (110 gallons) – Water from a chlorinated municipal source will not require pre-treatment if stored in clean sanitized containers. Mapleton 12th Ward Emergency Prep 5 31 January 2010
  6. 6. Food Storage ● Short-Term: We should build up a 3 month supply of the food we typically eat – Monitor your usage – Plan out what you want – Develop a plan to make it happen this year Mapleton 12th Ward Emergency Prep 6 31 January 2010
  7. 7. Food Storage ● Long Term: In addition to the short term we should work to build a long term supply of basics that could sustain us if needed – This is left very open to our individual needs – www.providentliving.org “For longer-term needs, and where permitted, gradually build a supply of food that will last a long time and that you can use to stay alive, such as wheat, white rice, and beans. These items can last 30 years or more when properly packaged and stored in a cool, dry place. A portion of these items may be rotated in your three-month Ward Emergency Prep th supply.” Mapleton 12 7 31 January 2010
  8. 8. Learning From Others ● What can we learn from other tragedies – e.g., Haiti – Typical communication down (phones, cells) – Many roads impassible (broken, filled with rubble) – Medical facilities tend to be overwhelmed – Police, Fireman, Ambulance likely unavailable for many hours, possibly days – Water – a critical commodity – tough to get – Food – no stores for days, possibly weeks – Sanitation – surviving after you survived Mapleton 12th Ward Emergency Prep 8 31 January 2010

  10. 10. What is a “Block” ● The “Block” system is based on the idea that there is not one magic person (government or other) who will come checking on us after a disaster. ● We all need to take care of each other. First in the local area (i.e. “Block”) then moving out from there - ward - stake . . . . ● In our ward the blocks are about 10 families ● Block captains gather info for their block and then report to the Ward Mapleton 12th Ward Emergency Prep 10 31 January 2010

  12. 12. Communication to Block Captain (CERT System) ● Color coded display in front of house – Green = all is well, no help needed – Yellow = need help but it's not an emergency – Red = immediate help or critical care needed – Black = deceased person(s) in the building (combine with other ribbons) – White = home is vacant (placed by others) Mapleton 12th Ward Emergency Prep 12 31 January 2010
  13. 13. Communications ● Mapleton 12th Ward will use “Family Band” radio channel 12 ● After Block Captains have identified the status and needs of all families in their block, they will radio to Ward Emergency Prep Coor.
