mirkwood Posted January 25, 2014 Report Share Posted January 25, 2014 (edited) Free Community Emergency Preparedness FairThe community preparedness fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Early Light Academy (11709 Vadania Drive) and will feature a variety of speakers, classes and activities to help everyone learn more about how to be ready for the worst-case scenario. The fair held on January 25th this year was so successful, that most of the vendors have already signed up for next year and asked us to extend the fair by 2 hours. Scheduled speakers include Maralin Hoff from Be Ready Utah, representatives from Utah Disaster Kleenup, volunteers from the American Red Cross and spokespeople from Questar. In addition, public emergency first-responders from the South Jordan police and fire departments will be available to answer questions and provide information. Classes will include first aid practices, how to filter water, proper sanitation practices, financial planning for an emergency, how to create a family emergency and evacuation plan and maintaining emotional wellbeing during a crisis. There will also be food storage meal cooking demonstrations. Many of the classes will be given more than once during the event, so those interested are invited to attend and participate at any time their schedules permit. Vendors will also be there with booths and demonstrations of products that can be purchased to prepare for an emergency. Local businesses, such as Jenkins Soffe Mortuary, will also make presentations on topics such as how to plan for the death of family members. This is a free event that is open to the entire community. Edited January 25, 2014 by mirkwood Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
