September is National Preparedness Month (NPM) a nationwide coordinated effort sponsored by the Ready Campaign and Citizen Corps encouraging families to take action now to prepare for future emergencies and disasters in their homes, businesses, and communities.
Disaster can strike quickly and without warning. It can force evacuation from or confinement to your home or work place. What would you do if water, gas, electricity, or telephone service were cut off? How would you reconnect with family if you were at work?
”Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare”
The Riverside Fire Department – Office of Emergency Management can help you be disaster ready. Plan to attend the 4th Annual Ready Riverside Emergency Preparedness Fair on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, 3520 Tyler Street, Riverside, (Target Store Parking Lot.)

Communities must work together to develop capabilities to respond quickly, and recover in a way that increases resilience. As a Unified City, Riversiders want to watch out for one another and this is a chance to learn to do that. For more information on the Fair call (951) 320-8112.
