Save The Date: Emergency Preparedness Fair, Sep 27

As may of you may know, the GNA has undertaken as one of its ongoing projects an effort to increase the emergency preparedness of families and businesses in our area. This project, a partnership with the Griffin Fire Department, Griffin School District, the Red Cross and local emergency planning agencies, is described in somewhat more detail on our web site.

On Saturday, September 27, the Thurston County Emergency Management Council will hold its Second Annual Emergency Preparedness Fair. This will include preparedness demonstrations, vendor booths and a lot of very useful information you can use to prepare for the inevitable. Whether its an earthquake, Avian Flu, or an extended power outage, a comprehensive event such as this one cannot be beat, as a way of preparing.

Saturday, September 27
9AM to 4PM
St. Martin’s University
Worthington Center & Pavilion
5300 Pacific Ave. SE, Lacey
