Foothill Area Emergency Response Exercise

Foothill Area Emergency Response Exercise
Saturday, September 21, 2013

Dear Resident,

The Foothill Area in coordination with the Bonneville Hills Community Council, and the Salt Lake Foothill Stake will be conducting an emergency response exercise on Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. A part of the exercise will be to practice the assessment of residents needs and the reporting of these needs to command centers.

We invite you to assist us on the day of the exercise by taping this flyer to a door or window clearly visible from the street. Block Captains and volunteers will be going through the neighborhood counting the number of flyers that are being shown in the windows or on the doors. In an actual emergency, placards will be used to indicate a need for assistance or to let others know that all is OK.

Please have this flyer taped to your door or window by 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 21, 2012. (You could even tape it the night before.)

We also encourage you to go to the Foothill Area emergency preparedness website at and download the packet titled, “Household Emergency Packet” Parts 1 and 2”. This packet provides information on how the emergency response in our area will be conducted. It also provides information about how to prepare for a future emergency.

The last page of Part 2 has a sheet showing “OK.”  If you print this sheet and tape it to your window or door in place of this flyer, it will provide us with a new item to track as we perform this exercise.

On the day of the exercise (or prior to the exercise) we invite you and all members of your family to do the following:

1.     Go to and download the packet titled, “Household Emergency Packet” Parts 1 and 2”.
2.     Read through the information, discuss with your family your family plan and fill in the information on the form section.
3.     Place the completed packet in one of three locations to assist emergency responders in the event of a disaster:

·         attached to your fridge
·         on the inside of a front hallway coat closet
·         next to their front window

For more information on the emergency response exercise, please contact your Block Captain or Dave Anderson at 801-583-7363.
