“Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them” (Ezekiel 38:7).

Stake and ward councils can use this planning guide and the accompanying worksheets to create or update emergency response plans (see Handbook 1: Stake Presidents and Bishops [2010], 5.1.3, 5.2.11). Stake and ward plans should be coordinated with plans in the community. Leaders may consider calling welfare specialists to assist with emergency response efforts. The most effective plans are brief and not overly complex. Councils should review and update plans regularly. With the following steps and accompanying worksheets, the stake or ward should be able to create:

  • A stake and ward preparedness plan.

  • An analysis of needs and action steps.
