TEMECULA – The Temecula Emergency Preparedness Fair is a free community event being held on Jan. 26 to help inform Temecula residents on how to be prepared in the case of a major disaster within the city limits, unemployment, tough economic times, etc.
Should there be an extended period of time with loss of power and/or water following one of these events or a disruption in income, residents will need basic preparedness knowledge.
The fair, sponsored by the City of Temecula, and co-sponsored by The Temecula Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will have experts on hand to demonstrate various aspects of preparedness.
Displays will include Dutch and solar oven demonstrations, 72-hour food kits, emergency sanitation, first aid kits, emergency car packs for vehicles, emergency lighting, proper water storage containers, HAM radio communications, classes available to the public and the various types of radios available, and the different types of gasoline, propane and LPG emergency generators.
The Murrieta Bishop’s storehouse will also display pre-packaged foods and long term food storage available for purchase by the general public at their Murrieta store.
The fair will give attendees opportunities to have their emergency preparedness questions answered. Additionally, they will come away with handouts containing valuable readiness information, including resources within the area, the best products available, and pricing.
The fair will be held on Jan. 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Conference Center at Temecula City Hall at 41000 Main Street.
