First-ever emergency fair will help you prepare

Posted: Friday, Apr 19th, 2013




EVANSTON — You may think living in the intermountain west insulates you from most natural disasters and potential large-scale emergencies. But a group of concerned residents and officials in the area want to prove you wrong. That why, under the leadership of organizer Stan Hinckley, they are offering residents the very first emergency preparedness fair this coming Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Evanston Roundhouse.

Organizers have spent many weeks meeting, discussing and planning the event to provide residents with a wealth of information that will help them protect themselves and their families in the event of an emergency.

Attendees will have an opportunity to learn emergency preparedness tips and tricks, how to shut off utilities in emergency situations, how to properly use a fire extinguisher, and visit booths with topics such as emergency supply kits, new home design concepts, survival shelters, food samples and much more.

In addition, local first responders will be on hand to offer retina scanning, DNA testing, and education on the care of pets in emergencies, as well as the care of those unable to safely evacuate and babies.

Two major door prizes will also go to a pair of lucky winners — a 72-hour survival kit and a flat screen television will be given away. Residents must sign up at the event, but need not be present to win.

Exhibitors at the event will include:
