City of Menifee logoAre you prepared for a disaster to strike? Get #MenifeeReady by joining the City of Menifee for its annual Emergency Preparedness Fair on Saturday, September 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Central Park (30268 Civic Plaza Dr.).

The Emergency Preparedness Fair will be filled with live activities and demonstrations from local experts including the City of Menifee’s Emergency Management Division, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and Menifee Police Department. Other participating agencies include Cal Fire, Riverside County Emergency Management Department, and local utilities.

“The City of Menifee has taken a proactive approach to ensuring our community is ready for the challenges that come during a disaster event,” said City Manager Armando Villa. “The Emergency Preparedness Fair is a tremendous opportunity for residents to learn first-hand from experts on how to best plan to protect their families.”

Informational booths at the event will include how to create an emergency kit, escape plans, as well as offer “hands only” CPR. Free Starbucks coffee and raffle prizes will also be available while supplies last.
