DATE TBD in Fall 2017!
For the past two years, the four cities on the Palos Verdes Peninsula have teamed up in an effort to educate our residents and the broader community on emergency preparedness at the Palos Verdes Peninsula Emergency Preparedness Expo.
Participants learn how to protect themselves, their family and their pets in a disaster. This fun-filled free event will provide a free lunch (while supplies last) and feature dozens of exhibitors, demonstrations and equipment displays.
Exhibitors include local organizations giving tips and tools and retail vendors selling preparedness goods, like extended life water, emergency bags as well as Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MREs) and much more. Participants have the opportunity to learn about the school district and library district preparedness plans. There are brief presentations available during the Expo on safety and preparedness tips. Exhibits like the Shakey Quakey Earthquake Simulator and the Homeland Security Investigations, Los Angeles Rapid Response Team’s Mobile Command Unit (RRT), Police & Sheriff vehicles provide for a fun-family time. Also, Fire Station #106 (next door to the Norris Pavilion) holds an open house for visits and tours!
This Expo is a local resource to the Palos Verdes Peninsula and is supported by the Cities of Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Palos Verdes Police Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Department of Homeland Security.
