If you are not ready for the 'big one,' you'll have a chance to prepare this Saturday.

This year marks the 7th annual San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Fair.  The San Ramon Valley Citizen Corp Council along with various county, state and federal agencies will be showcasing their response resources and programs on Saturday, September 15 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the LDS Church located at 655 Old Orchard Road in Danville.

This event is all about families and personal preparedness. Gather ideas to update or create your home earthquake kit. Bring your child’s car seat between 10 a.m. and noon and stop by the car seat check point. Help your kids learn to never hide during a fire by participating in the Hug-a-Firefighter presentations. Get your child fingerprinted and take part in a Stranger Danger class. Learn all about fire safety in the home with a tour of the Kids Fire Safety House.

The event will also include a Jaws of Life demonstration from the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District, a tour of a Red Cross Shelter, a display from the Camp Parks 352nd Military Medical Brigade, a presentation by the Danville and San Ramon Police canine teams and an exhibit from the National Guard Civil Support Team.

Don’t leave your four-legged family members at home. Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center and Urgent Care will be on hand to provide information on shots and microchip implanting.

Enjoy a free BBQ lunch, learn about CPR, interact with vendors and agencies specializing in preparedness, tour a fire truck and police car and even learn how to properly use a fire extinguisher.

The first 500 families who complete our preparedness bingo game will receive a free emergency supply gift, so gather up the whole family and head down to the San Ramon Valley Emergency Preparedness Fair.

The Fair is proudly sponsored by The San Ramon Valley Citizen Corp Council, The LDS Church, Pacific Eagle Holding, AT&T, San Ramon Regional Medical Center and Joyce Feldman Farmers Insurance Agency.--KF
