MALIBU—The city of Malibu is inviting the public to attend the Public Safety and Preparedness Expo on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The expo will be created at the Trancas Country Market.
The focus of the expo is to assist residents in understanding how to help themselves, their family and neighborhood prepare for wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters. According to the city of Malibu website, after the Woolsey Fire, the Malibu community developed an opportunity to emerge stronger. One of the best ways to prepare for wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters as individuals, families and a community is to get trained in first aid and emergency preparedness, make emergency plans, and stock to help individuals to sustain for at least 3 days after a major disaster.
Safety and preparedness presentations and vendor booths will include the Los Angeles County Fire and Sheriff’s Departments, the miniature therapy horses that work with the Sheriff’s Department, the American Red Cross, the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management, Emergency Café, KBUU 99.1 FM, fire prevention and emergency preparedness equipment and service vendors. There will be wildland fire preparedness presentations.
Classes, schedules, speakers and vendors will be at www.MalibuCity.org/SafetyExpo and on the City’s social media accounts and will teach children about emergency preparedness.
The Expo, organized by the Malibu Office of Public Safety and the Public Safety Commission, is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to increase public safety and disaster preparedness in the community.
