Full Description:
Utah State University Extension across the great state of Utah is committed to assisting families in the area of personal and family preparedness. In fact, nationally the university Extension system is working together to address this issue of preparedness through the Extension Disaster Education Network.

In light of so many natural disasters and the current economic conditions, we have seen the need for all to be more prepared…no matter where you live or who you are.

With that in mind, USU Extension has teamed up with Be Ready Utah and others to bring Utah residents a day of “learning beyond the basics” at a Preparedness Conference and Expo. Classes and workshops, demonstrations and vendors, will all be a part of this event.
