    BOUNTIFUL — September has been designated as National Preparedness Month and Davis County residents are encouraged to take steps to prepare for the unexpected.

    With the help of Citizen Corps, the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Ready Campaign outlined four steps that will help families and individuals prepare, according to a press release.

    The steps include being informed, making a plan, building a kit and getting involved, and can be viewed in greater detail at ready.gov.

    Utah-based Daily Bread is a local supporter of the preparedness campaign.

    “It is very important to plan ahead and take the necessary steps and to have the proper supplies on hand in case of an emergency situation,” said Mark Hyland, Chief Executive Officer for Daily Bread, as quoted in the release.

    Joe Dougherty, public information officer for the Division of Emergency Management in Utah, has also spoken in support of preparing.

    “Our organization continues to encourage people to have a plan in place and the recommended supplies on hand,” Dougherty was quoted as saying. “This step would make all the difference in their lives should a disaster or emergency occur.”

    Supplies to help with storage and purification of water, as well as freeze-dried foods with a shelf-life of up to 25 years, are available from DailyBread.com.
