Documenting Emergencies

We have created a new guideline to help agencies with record-keeping decisions around unusual and significant events. The hope is that this guideline will make the job of records officers easier and will aid in creating comprehensive collections detailing how agencies across the state of Utah have dealt with COVID-19, earthquakes, forest fires, or any other important events in the state’s history.
