There’s a free gift waiting for you if you are one of the first 500 families who stop by the 6th annual San Mateo County Disaster Preparedness Day in the U.S. Geological Survey’s Menlo Park campus Saturday (9/18) from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. You’ll also get information to better prepare yourself to survive on your own after an emergency and learn how to support your family and neighbors in the event of a major disaster.
The free event will feature more than 25 exhibit booths, fire and law enforcement emergency response vehicles, emergency kit and disaster plan instructions, and a free basic course in CPR at 1:00 pm. There will also be an hands-on “Make Your Own Earthquake” and “Shake House” demonstration. Free hot dogs and soft drinks will be provided while supplies last.
