Emergency Planning

Q.How is the community organized so that citizens can provide and request help in the event of a disaster?
A.The City is divided into "districts", which use the same boundaries as LDS stakes. Each district is divided into 5 to 10 "areas" which use the same boundaries as LDS wards. Each area is divided into 12 to 20 neighborhoods. LDS stake and ward boundaries are used because they are well established, convenient and recognized by many within the city. It is critical to note that the plan is for all citizens living within these boundaries regardless of religious affiliation. Layton City has asked the LDS stake presidents to help us identify a "district coordinator" for each district. District coordinators are trained by Layton City and are responsible to appoint and train "area coordinators", who appoint and train "neighborhood coordinators". Those who serve as district, area and neighborhood coordinators function as Layton City volunteers, and as such, serve without regard to religious affiliation. Layton City encourages each area to have at least 30 CERT trained citizens who can be divided into at least two teams to perform triage, emergency first aid and rapid damage assessment as soon as possible after an event occurs. CERT teams for each area are organized and coordinated by the area coordinators. During an emergency, district, area and neighborhood coordinators are primarily concerned with the welfare of citizens and act in a prudent and wise manner to see to their safety and well-being. As a secondary concern, they consider the protection and preservation of private property in the neighborhood. Through the organization of functioning districts, areas and neighborhoods, Layton City will be better able to communicate with and assist the citizens of Layton during a major emergency event.


Q.What is CERT training, and how do I schedule training?
A.CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. CERT training provides instruction for citizens to provide basic assistance in areas such as disaster awareness, fire suppression, first-aid, urban search and rescue, and disaster psychology during a catastrophe or disaster. During a disaster, it may be several days before Police, Fire and Medical personnel can respond, so this training provides a valuable service to the student’s family and neighbors that would be served. The course consists of 8 modules and currently costs $25 per participant for the entire course. Courses can be scheduled through the Management Services Department secretary at 336-3820. Also see www.laytoncity.org under “Live and Work“, “Emergency Preparedness“ and “CERT“.


Q.Where can I find more information on Emergency Preparedness?
A.See www.laytoncity.org under “Live and Work”, “Emergency Preparedness”
