Prepare for Disaster at the County Fair this Saturday

San Mateo County will help residents learn how to prepare for disasters of many kinds and make their own preparedness kits at the fair this Saturday.

Are you prepared in the event of a disaster such as a fire, an earthquake, a tsunami or an act of terrorism?

San Mateo County wants you to be, and so they are welcoming all to the County Fair this Saturday to learn how.

And, as your reward for learning, you can park and get into the fair for free!

Arrive between 10 and 11 a.m. this Saturday for the County's free Disaster Preparedness workshop, and your parking and admission will be free.

The Office of Emergency Services will teach first aid, police, fire and emergency equipment demonstrations, help your family come up with disaster plans, and how to assemble emergency kits to have on hand. Attendees can also take a fast and free course in basic CPR procedures.

The County Fairgrounds are located at 1346 Saratoga Ave. For more information on the fair, parking, ticket prices and public transporation routes, check out .
