DISASTER PREPAREDNESS EXPO
September 15, 2007
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The U.S. recognizes the month of September as National Disaster Preparedness Month. In keeping with the national spirit of disaster preparedness and in rememberance of 9-11, the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is holding a Disaster Preparedness Expo. The purpose of this Expo is to inform and educate citizens in our community and surrounding communities in areas of emergency and disaster preparedness.  The event will specifically include education and awareness in areas of earthquake, tsunami, fire safety, medical instruction, community security, coastal water safety, neighborhood watch, school preparedness, hazardous materials and home disaster preparedness.  In addition to educating the public, this event will also provide Coastal Community volunteer organizations related to emergency preparedness with an opportunity to recruit interested citizens. The Expo will be held at the Siuslaw Middle School, in Florence, on September 15, 2007.  There will be indoor and outdoor activities, seminars, food, raffle prizes, fingerprinting for children and the opportunity to donate blood at the Blood Mobile.
