The beauty of the San Ramon Valley was created by earthquakes, fire and flooding. It has and will happen again. It is never too soon to get prepared for an emergency. The San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Citizen Corps Council invites the community to get prepared at the Emergency Preparedness Fair on Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at San Ramon Central Park and Community Center.
This event is all about families and personal preparedness! Gather ideas to update or create your own home emergency kit. Bring your child’s car seat between 10 a.m. and noon and stop by the car seat check point. Get your child fingerprinted. Learn all about fire safety in the home with a tour of the Kids Fire Safety House.
Event attendees will also enjoy viewing a Jaws of Life demonstration from the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District, a demo from the Bomb Squad, a display from the Camp Parks 352nd Military Medical Brigade, and a K-9 demonstrations by San Ramon and Danville Police.
Don’t forget about your four-legged family members. There will be free classes on pet first aid and the Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center and Urgent Care will be on hand to provide information on shots and microchip implanting.
Oh and there’s more! Enjoy a purchased food truck lunch, learn CPR and the proper use of an AED, interact with vendors and agencies specializing in preparedness, tour a fire truck and police car and even learn how to properly use a fire extinguisher.
The first 500 families who complete our preparedness bingo game will receive a FREE emergency supply gift, so gather up the whole family and head down to the San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Fair.
The Fair is proudly sponsored by The San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Citizen Corps Council, The LDS Church, AT&T, Joyce Feldman Farmers Insurance Agency and Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center and Urgent Care.
