Recently a study in West Valley revealed that only 20 percent of the people in the area ‘jump in’ to help with a life-saving skill.  Here in Mapleton, we would like to provide training at little to no cost to our citizens so that they will feel more comfortable in jumping in when there is an emergency.  Our next class will be taught on March 24, 2018 starting at 9AM.  Three levels of CPR can be taught during the class, Hands-only, Heartsaver, and Basic Life Support.   Please consider taking a CPR course so that you will feel prepared and able to help in a future emergency.  If you are interested, please contact the city offices at 801-489-5655 to sign up.  More information can be found on our website at

We are excited to announce our annual Easter Party at the library.  It will be held on March 21st at 5pm.  Come join us for an Easter egg hunt, prizes and fun activities.  Please call or sign up at the library by March 16th if you plan to attend.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in cooperation with the State of Utah Division of Emergency Management has prepared preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for review and comment.  A FIRM is an official community map on which FEMA delineates both special flood management hazard areas and risk premium zones for the applicable community.  These maps are used to help mitigate the effects of potential flooding in the area.  The FIRM is also used to determine eligibility for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which provides protection for property owners from potential losses due to flooding.

A Public Open House will be held on March 21, 2018 at the Springville Civic Center from 6:00pm – 8:00pm where the revisions to the FIRM will be presented and public comment solicited.  Digital copies of the FIRM are available online at the below website:
