We were proud to co-sponsor the 5th Annual Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair on Saturday, Oct. 6 at Fire Station 87 in Granada Hills together with Northridge South, Northridge East, Northridge West, Granada Hills North, Granada Hills South, North Hills West, Porter Ranch, and Chatsworth Neighborhood Councils.
Nearly 1,000 community members attended to learn about the best ways to get prepared to survive and recover from earthquakes, wildfires, floods and other disasters.
The Neighborhood Councils gave away over 400 Emergency Preparedness Kits to participants. Families enjoyed free hot dogs and hamburgers cooked up by Firefighers. The Yogi Bear Shakey-Quakey School House and Free Child IDs were provided by Granada Hills Masons. There were demonstrations and booths from HAM Radio Operators, LAFD's Jaws-of-Life, DWP Safety Demonstration, the Red Cross, LAPD Mobile Command Post, CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), Northridge Hospital Trauma Department and more.
Our sincere thanks go out to our fellow Neighborhood Councils and Fire Station 87 for hosting this wonderful community event!
