[ARCHIVED] City of Malibu to Hold Safety and Preparedness Expo to Help Residents Be Prepared for Disasters

Safety Preparedness Expo

This fun, free event is a great opportunity to teach kids about emergency preparedness, and an easy way for families to get started on making their emergency plans. Attendees can take a class, experience a simulated earthquake, stock up on emergency supplies, and chat with local first responders. Companies, government agencies and volunteer groups will have information and demonstration booths and supplies for sale. All visitors will receive a raffle ticket with drawings for many valuable prizes throughout the day, including gift cards from local businesses and earthquake preparedness supplies. The Expo is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to increase public safety and disaster preparedness in the community, and is part of the City’s 2018 Earthquake Resiliency Initiative. The Expo is free and open to all ages. RSVPs are not required, but it is recommended to register in advance for the free classes because space is limited.
