Advance Your Emergency and Wildfire Preparedness and Meet with Police, Fire and Other Public Safety Agencies at Malibu’s Annual Public Safety Expo, June 4
The City of Malibu is working to help the community prepare for wildfires, earthquakes, and other disasters with the City’s annual Public Safety Expo on Saturday, June 4, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at City Hall.
“We never know when disaster may strike, so the time to get prepared as individuals and as a community is right now,” said Mayor Paul Grisanti. “I urge every resident, employee, student or business owner in Malibu to join us for the Public Safety Expo to learn how to make a plan and gather supplies so we can be ready and resilient.”
The free event is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to help the community be more prepared for wildfires, earthquakes, floods, landslides and other disasters that nature might bring.
Attendees can take a ride in an earthquake simulator that recreates a realistic and educational experience of a major earthquake inside a house, highlighting the need to make your home more earthquake safe.
Numerous vendors will have emergency preparedness equipment and supplies for sale and demonstration. Attendees can learn about a variety of volunteer opportunities and see specialty emergency and law enforcement teams and vehicles such as K-9, Malibu Sherriff Search and Rescue, Fire Department trucks and more.
The Expo is a great opportunity for kids to learn about emergency preparedness and meet public safety and law enforcement professionals in person. The Expo is also a great way to get started on, or to improve upon, your emergency preparedness plans and supplies.
