PREPAREDNESS EXPO

The Crescenta Valley Fire Safe Council is sponsoring a Preparedness Expo on Sat., June 16th at Two Strike Park in La Crescenta.   Our goal is to help the residents, businesses and institutions of the Crescenta Valley become better able to deal with conditions during the interval between the onset of an emergency/disaster and the arrival of professional responders (Fire, Law Enforcement, Medical, etc.) or other assistance.   Fortunately, in The Crescenta Valley, this critical period of time is often fairly short, but, in the more rare cases of major incidents, this waiting period can take days or even weeks.  Being prepared ahead of time, with knowledge, skills and resources can reduce the possibility of damage, injury, death or simple inconvenience & discomfort.  

At this expo we will have speakers, demonstrations, booths (information, vendors, etc.), and other activities specifically related to dealing with preparedness for various types of emergency incidents/disasters (large and small).    The following list indicates some of the type of topics to be covered:

 

Utilities

Security/Crime

Disasters (Earthquakes, Fires, Mudslides, etc.)

Home/Work/Auto Emergencies

Communications/Information

Risk Assessment/Hazard Mitigation/Insurance

Skills Training (1st Aid, CERT, etc.)

Preparedness Mindset

 

We would like to extend an invitation to you to attend. It starts at 11 and will wrap by 2 PM
