A Community Emergency Preparedness and Food Storage Fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at the LDS Church Chapel at 615 Hollow Way in Nevada City off Gold Flat Road next to Hooper and Weaver Mortuary.

The fair is being held for the community to review possible disaster responses in a concentrated one-day program. It will feature a 33-minute video on emergency preparedness and 12 exhibits on different aspects of preparedness and food storage.

Participants will include the American Red Cross, the Fire Safe Council, PG&E, The County Office of Emergency Services and local units of the LDS Church, who will focus on all the aspects of food storage. This includes providing computer generated custom family food storage plans.

The Fire Safe Council will show how to protect homes from wildfires with landscaping techniques and other measures that create buffers around structures. PG&E will have a display on how to turn off utility services during a disaster to protect your home in the event of gas leaks or power line issues.
