We Prepare

In an emergency, chaos can overwhelm the multi-pronged system of first responders, hospitals, police, fire, utility and road crews, government and military leaders, aid organizations, private businesses and volunteers. Communication and coordination among all of these groups is key to effective response, assessment and post-emergency clean up and rebuilding.

The Utah Emergency Management Association was created to bring representatives from every level of emergency management together to share knowledge, collaborate on preparedness planning and encourage continuing education for emergency managers across the state of Utah

We exist to create a centralized network of knowledge and know-how to increase emergency response effectiveness and to provide aid and support to programs of the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency and other related agencies.

We are the UEMA and it’s our job to prepare.
