Brentwood Safety and Emergency Preparedness Fair

The Brentwood Police Department is inviting the community to participate in a special event!

Join us for the 6th annual Safety and Emergency Preparedness Fair at 2530 Jeffery Way, Brentwood on Saturday August 24th from 10 am – 2 pm.

On Saturday members from various Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints throughout East County are coming together to host an East County Safety and Emergency Preparedness Fair.

The Safety and Emergency Preparedness Fair is an opportunity for the community to come together to discuss and prepare for the likelihood of a disaster or emergency and to engage the general public in a desire to prepare themselves and their families for such an occurrence

This sixth annual event will be more than just the simply pulling together a few fire trucks and police service groups to show off their wares. The groups will offer programs to help to teach and train East County residents and let them know about the resources available to them in case of an disaster.

The group will bring organizations from all over together, including Antioch, Brentwood, Oakley and Pittsburg Police departments, Brentwood SWAT and K-9 groups, as well as Neighborhood Watch, Antioch Union School District, Liberty Union High School District and Brentwood Union School District, U.S. Coast Guard, AMR Ambulance Service, American Red Cross, and all of the East County fire departments.

At noon the CalStar helicopter will arrive and Contra Costa County Search and Rescue will be on hand to answer any questions.

There will also be programs to help educate children to be prepared, provide children’s finger printing and information on emergency supplies to store and how to store them. There also will be information on how to prepare homes, including how to build a 72-hour survival kit.
