    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - (+VIDEO) KCSG Community Windows features Pete Kuhlmann, Washington County director of emergency services to address the concept of personal, business or family preparedness. Washington County emergency services has identified the top five hazard scenarios in this area are flood, fire, drought, earthquake and pandemic.

    "How well you survive a disaster, depends on what you do before the disaster happens," Kuhlmann said. He recommends making an individual, family and business emergency plan and discuss it with family members and co-workers. Everyone should have a 72-hour kit at home, one in your vehicle and one at work. For a list of items to include in this kit, visit www.bereadyutah.gov or www.redcross.org/prepare.

    Anyone with functional needs, should take additional steps in emergency preparation. Go to www.specialneedsutah.org to register and learn more.
