Sponsored by your Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council and produced by Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council, Palisades residents are invited to the FREE San Pedro Emergency Preparedness Fair. Meet the people who can save you in an emergency; learn the simple skills that can help you save yourself and your family; and build peace of mind by preparing now before there is an emergency.
10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Peck Park Community Center
560 N. Western Avenue
No one likes to think about emergencies and disasters, but after a disaster, it’s too late to prepare. To show you all the great gear and supplies to meet your needs, local businesses and organizations are offering exhibits, workshops and seminars–all free.

Get that edge
Bring your family, group of friends and your neighbors; most people who survive disasters are saved by other survivors, so learn together. Remember, in a major disaster the police and fire will be overwhelmed; prepare now to survive the critical hours until they can reach you. Learn how to move yourself and family to safer zones or how to shelter in place for each possible scenario. The more you know, the less you need to worry about.
Grab your gear
Get hands on experience with the key elements of preparedness: water, shelter, safety, first aid, food, and communications. Learn what you need at home, in your car (so you can get home or get away) and always at hand.
The San Pedro Emergency Preparedness Fair is a project of the Northwest San Pedro Neighborhood Council with the support of the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council and the Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council.
