Public to be prepared in Farmington

September 16, 2012 by  

The Public Emergency Preparedness Fair will take place at the month. This is a free event and will provide some sound advice that any local resident will benefit from hearing.

With major weather disasters making the news again this year in the United States, it may concern people that such events could result in their homes losing electricity for long periods of time, that roads might be impassable, or that those who depend on to help from others might be delayed, making it especially important that everyone knows how to be prepared if the worst should happen.

The fair will feature workshops on how to make emergency kits and will feature local fire departments given presentations. In addition, representatives from MoChips will be helping to protect children by taking their fingerprints, photographs, dental impressions, and providing two laminated identification cards. These become very important tools for local police if a child goes missing.

As with most preparedness fairs, representatives from local providers of the sorts of items usually found in an emergency kit will also probably be in attendance. Fire departments are likely to be providing literature for guests to take home. As is common in events like this, Farmington printing companies could provide informative booklets for the fire departments to hand out during their presentations, which could provide fire safety tips, information on how to design an escape route in case of an emergency, and a list of items needed for an emergency kit.

The fair will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Henry Street on September 29 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. For more information, call 573-756-6803.
