Several residents have called the City Office regarding the yellow postcard mailer that was received in the mail. The postcard was mistakenly mailed out to Fruit Heights City residents because we share the 84037 zip code with Kaysville City. Please be aware that this information does not apply to Fruit Heights City residents and is meant for Kaysville City residents, this notice can be disregarded as it does not affect Fruit Heights City.
The Citizen Core Council has invited a special guest speaker, Kathryn McMullin, to teach a class on "Conversations In Preparedness". This class will educate families on conversations that should happen before a disaster in order to be more resilient.
The class will take place in the basement meeting room of Fruit Heights City Hall this Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. It is free of charge.

Conversations in Preparedness
Kathryn McMullin, the www.firstrespondermom.com, is a Critical Thinking Analyst in the Utah Division of Emergency Management. Recently, she presented an outstanding class on emergency sanitation that surprised the overflow audience in our city hall regarding the importance of this topic. Kathryn is a talented and well-informed lecturer that has graciously agreed to return to discuss Conversations in Preparedness.
Communication is a very importan...t part of being prepared. This class educates families on what conversations they should be having before a disaster occurs in order to be more resilient and in a way that won’t traumatize younger children. She’ll discuss family emergency plans and what should be included. Although pertinent instructions will be provided by local authorities; what if you’re being asked to evacuate? What do you do if your child is at school, your teenager is at a practice session and your spouse is at work? Your emergency plan should address how to reunite. Kathryn will give fun examples of how to involve your entire family in planning so that it’s an adventure, not a disaster.
Please plan to attend this class on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the basement of the Fruit Heights City offices. Enter on the west side of the building. There’s no cost for attending and you’ll learn new ways of preparing for events that you hope will never happen.
Here's an interesting and informative video explaining where and how our garbage is disposed of, the landfill, and efforts to recycle.
55 years our STAR has been lit on the Mountainside. Here is a great background story.
THE KAYSVILLE STAR! Tonight we begin another year of the 55+ year tradition of lighting the "Star On The Mountain." This video was graciously produced last yea...r by the Utah League of Cities and Towns and highlights the selfless efforts of so many community volunteers that made this time honored tradition possible. The star warms our hearts and will continue to grace the communities of Kaysville and Fruit Heights through January 1st. Thanks to all who made it possible and all who continue to volunteer to make it possible today!
Did you see the Davis Darts Marching Band in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade? Congratulations on this epic achievement!
