We all hope there won’t be an earthquake, a wildfire, a residential fire, another extreme heat event, or another pandemic. But what if. . . ?
If one of these things happens, WILL YOU BE READY?
Angelenos of all ages are welcome at next Sunday’s 4th Annual Greater Los Angeles Safety and Preparedness Fair.
It is a citywide event, but very close to UNNC’s footprint – and you can conveniently take the Expo Line to the Fair (Vermont/Exposition exit).
Fair organizers want to make sure you, your family, your friends, and your neighbors are ready if something does happen.
That’s why they established a Safety Fair where you can learn from the experts how — before an emergency happens – and what to do to stay safe.
Highlights of this event include:
- Expert speakers
- Tons of information booths
- Fun activities for kids — including a Kids’ Bike Safety Rodeo (kids should bring their bikes and helmets and join in the fun)
- See fire trucks and police cars; talk to local firefighters, police and CHP officers
You can learn:
- Hands only CPR
- Stop the Bleed
- Basic First Aid
- Pet First Aid
- How to use a fire extinguisher by actually using a fire extinguisher
- How to turn off your utilities after an earthquake
- And more!
Admission to the event is free, as are the presentations, the hands-on training opportunities, and a special kids’ bike safety course/bike rodeo.
And you won’t walk away empty-handed! Fair organizers will be giving away free basic emergency preparedness/first aid supplies to attendees on a first come, first served basis, one set per household while supplies last. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase lunch or snacks from food trucks and to buy additional emergency preparedness supplies from on-site vendors.
UNNC will have a booth (table) – please do stop by to learn about our local resources. We will have emergency preparation checklists, flashlights, and writing materials – all on a first-come basis and as long as supplies last.
It’s best for community members to pre-register for the event so the organizers can gauge the number of household preparedness kits to order, so they know how many children will bring their bikes and helmets to participate in the bike rodeo, and so the Fire Marshall can gauge the participation level.
Attendees are encouraged to pre-register their household with the QR code in the flyer (below) OR this link:
Captain Rico Gross with the Los Angeles Fire Department, Crisanta Gonzalez with the Los Angeles Emergency Management Department, and Aaron Gross with the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Office are the principal City team members for this large-scale event.
Hope to see you there!
