- Local families learned how to prepare 72-hour emergency kits — for themselves AND their pets!
- A local police officer taught a packed classroom full of local residents how to respond in an active shooter situation.
- ReadyOC gathered hundreds of pledges from Expo attendees to prepare for an emergency.
- Local law enforcement and safety agencies provided valuable tips for families to improve their emergency plans.
Even better, you still have the chance to learn more! Because many classes were filled to capacity — with standing room only — we want to make EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS EXPO class and exhibit information available to everyone who is interested. Our presenters and participants have been generous enough to provide copies of materials they shared in class, as well as their handouts. These are now available on this website. Please go to the Class Links & Downloads tab to find the class information you’re looking for.
We appreciate your interest — and look forward to seeing you at next year’s EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS EXPO!
