Pet Licensing Clinics in Emigration: 3/14, 6/13, 9/12, & 12/12

2019 Pet Licensing Clinics in Emigration

A message from Salt Lake County Animal Services

Salt Lake County Animal Services is coming to Emigration Canyon four times this year to license and microchip your pets! Help your pet get home safe and make sure they’re up-to-date on their licenses. All dogs, cats and ferrets must be licensed in Emigration Canyon Metro Township.

When Should You License:

  • Within 30 days of moving to a new city/township. Or as soon as your pet is over 5 months of age.

Why Your Pet Should Be Licensed:

  • A license is the best way to reunite you with your pet if they become lost. Secondly, if you pet is injured, and found by one of our officers, a license guarantees that they would be taken to a veterinarian for emergency care.

What to Bring to the Licensing Clinic:

  • Bring proof of previous rabies vaccinations, license, & microchip.
  • If you’re getting your pet microchipped, dogs MUST be on leash and cats MUST be in carriers.

License Fees:

  • $15: Sterilized
  • $40: Unsterilized:
  • $5: Senior Citizen (residents 60 & older. Pet must be Sterilized)

The licensing clinics will be held from 12pm-2pm at the Fire Station (5025 Emigration Canyon Rd) on these dates in 2019:

  • March 14th,

Storm Cleanup – Crews Coming Monday

Good Evening All – Here’s the latest on our chipping and storm cleanup operations.

United Fire Authority and Utah DNR crews were back in the canyon today, trying to complete our original chipping list. Our chipping crews have done what they were able to accomplish, so we’re now shifting to heavier equipment to remove trees and branches that came down in the storm.

On Monday we’ll have two crews in the canyon with frontend loaders and trucks. One will start near the old Sun and Moon. The other will start at the top of the canyon and work down. Both will focus on new storm downfall.

Please pile any trees and brush you wish to have removed by the side of the road by Monday morning. 

ONLY storm-damaged trees, branches and brush should go into these piles. We’re getting green waste disposal rates for these loads, and any contaminants could raise our already considerable costs.

Our hope is to clear all significant storm damage by end of day Monday.

It’s going to be a busy weekend. Work safe out there!

Fire Prevention Week – October 8-14, 2017

An announcement from Unified Fire Authority for Fire Prevention Week, October 8-14

Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!

Plan Ahead! If a fire breaks out in your home, you may have only a few minutes to get out safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Everyone needs to know what to do and where to go if there is a fire.

Here are a few resources to help you plan your escape routes in the event of a fire.

PDFs:

Safety Tips

  • MAKE a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home showing all doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in your home.
  • KNOW at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily.
  • HAVE an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole or mailbox) a safe distance from the home where everyone should meet.
  • PRACTICE your home fire drill at night and during the day with everyone in your home, twice a year.
  • PRACTICE using different ways out.
  • TEACH children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them.
  • CLOSE doors behind you as you leave.

IF THE ALARM SOUNDS…

  • If the smoke alarm sounds, GET OUT AND STAY OUT. Never go back inside for people or pets.
  • If you have to escape through smoke, GET LOW AND GO under the smoke to your way out.
  • CALL the fire department from outside your home.

FACTS

  • A closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Install smoke alarms inside every sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Install alarms on every level of the home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected. When one smoke alarm sounds, they all sound.
  • According to an NFPA survey, only one of every three American households have actually developed and practiced a home fire escape plan.
  • While 71% of Americans have an escape plan in case of a fire, only 47% of those have practiced it.
  • One-third of American households who made an estimate thought they would have at least 6 minutes before a fire in their home would become life-threatening. The time available is often less. And only 8% said their first thought on hearing a smoke alarm would be to get out!
