PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Legislature wants you to be prepared in case a nuclear bomb goes off high in the atmosphere or a massive solar flare disrupts electronic communications and the power grid.

Gov. Jan Brewer also wants you to be ready, so she signed a bill Friday requiring the state’s emergency management agency to develop recommendations for citizens just in case of nuclear attack.

The recommendations must include the type and quantity of food, water, and medical supplies that each person should stockpile in case an electromagnetic pulse occurs over the U.S.

The state Division of Emergency Management is required to post the recommendations on its website and update them at least every five years.

Senate Bill 1476 was sponsored by Republican Rep. David Farnsworth of Mesa.
