Disaster Preparedness & Response

Welcome to American Fork City’s Emergency Management section, this page contains information and resources for residents and businesses. The health safety and welfare of the citizens of American Fork, particularly in times of disaster is accomplished through:
  • Coordinating local agencies
  • Educating the public
  • Planning effective contingencies
  • Training of staff and citizens in disaster preparedness
The City of American Fork is prepared for all disasters with a comprehensive Major Indecent Plan (the plan linked intentionally excludes private contact information included in the full plan). This plan sets up an Emergency Operating Center, with proper emergency chains of command, as well as communication methods to the community. In an emergency the city can use a reverse 911 system to alert residents.
