Back by popular demand in Hood River- a hands-on safety fair and fascinating Cascadia Subduction earthquake presentation – THE BIG ONE 2.0 in Hood River — 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 20. It was standing room only last year and this year, we’re at a new location with a lot more room for hands-on activities at Rockford Grange and Westside Fire station, 4250 Barrett Dr. Hood River, OR.

 

Go hands-on with fire extinguishers, Go-Kits, mobile response vehicles, tour Westside Fire station, talk to the folks that staffed the EOC (Emergency Operations Center) for the winter storm, learn how to purify and store water safely, preserve food, learn about generators, how to safely shut off utilities, get ready for recreation season and emergencies at the same time.

Enjoy Westside Fire/Hood River Fire free BBQ and Fresh Start tasty hors d’ oeuvres. Hang out with Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey Bear. It’s everything you need to know—all the local public safety experts in one place – how to handle emergencies— and practice it, hands-on –        to Get Ready Gorge for Cascadia earthquakes and other emergencies.
