The Allen County Office of Homeland Security along with Servpro, Jefferson Pointe and WANE TV are once again participating in the Allen County Safety Fair.  2017 mark’s the event’s 9th year.

 

You’re invited to bring your family out to Jefferson Pointe, in the parking lot behind Carmike Cinemas, on Saturday, September 23rd from 10 am – 1 pm.

 

Preparedness begins at home. Risks include events such as natural disasters, disease pandemics, chemical spills and other manmade hazards, terrorist attacks and cyber-attacks.  Preparedness is the shared responsibility of our entire nation.  The fair was initially created to promote National Preparedness Month in September, and has evolved and grown to cover almost every arena of safety in general.  The focus is still, primarily, family preparedness, and ‘What to Do’ scenarios.  This is a FREE community event, geared for families and kids, with plenty of resources available to take home, as well as “hands on” activities at the event itself.
