Be ready with your actual address (in addition to the name of your complex), contact information, and identification (e.g. a social security number over the phone or two photo IDs in person).
Every apartment has minimum health and safety requirements (e.g., structural soundness, working plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems, minimum bedroom floor area, smoke alarms). If you are having a problem with any of the above items and you have already contacted management (but they have not yet repaired the problem), contact the Provo City Zoning Office at 801-852-6400.
Being prepared for an emergency is just as important when you’re a student as any other time. There are a lot of things that you can to do be prepared and even little efforts can go a long way when the time comes.
Basically, you need to Make a Plan, Get a Kit, and Be Informed.
Make a Plan for what you will do in different emergency situations. Do you have an out-of-state contact? Where will you go? What should you do?
Get a Kit means having supplies ready so that when you need to go, you can leave in a hurry. One of the most important things you can have is water. It’s easy to store a couple of gallons of water and the water will make a big difference when you need it.
Be Informed. The more you know about potential disasters, the better you will be equipped to deal with them. Visit Be Ready Utah’s website or Provo’s Emergency Management website to learn more about emergency preparedness.
