The Emergency Preparedness Expo 2012 is over and it was a huge success!  If you attended, please post you comments on this blog - we would love some feedback.  If you are on the blog and unable to find the handouts, recipes, or information you need, please leave us a question and we'll try to help you. 

Please note: Handouts are being added daily. Within the next two weeks we will also have videos of the presentations on the blog. 

Thanks everyone for an amazing couple of days!

 Before EXPO - Our Committee



  1. My hats off to our hosts. Well planned, lots of volunteers, always adjusting to meet the needs of class rooms, kept everything on schedule.

    Thank you to everyone involved! It was a very educational event.

  2. Enjoyed the fun photo! You really did outdo yourselves and deserve a huge thanks from all of us for the teaching and encouraging us to become more prepared for emergencies. Well done!!

  3. What a fantastic event! Patti, you and your crew put on the best preparedness fair I've ever attended. Thanks for including me. I also really enjoyed taking with Crismon, another desert rat that has decided to embrace moss! From top to bottom, a first class experience.

    All my best!

  4. Thank you so much for wonderful event. I visited at the long table about water, purifiers, filters and was shown a chart that compared all the different plastic water storage containers giving discriptions and telling of any health hazards from containers to the water. I was told that this chart would be on the blog. Can someone tell me how I can get a copy of that cause I don't see it on the blog. C.J.

  5. C.J. Glad you enjoyed the Expo! All of the handouts from the table about water, purifiers, and filters should now be on the blog. Look under "Emergency Water Treatment 2" under "Handouts". Please note however, that the title of that Handout link may change back to just "Emergency Water Treatment." Please leave a comment again letting us know if you found the handout you were looking for. Thanks!

  6. how do i get the handouts?

    1. To get the handouts click on the subject in which you are interested under the word "Handouts" on the left sidebar. Then scroll down until you are below the blog header. You should see the title of the topic you clicked on. Then the handouts will show up or you will see a list of titles of the handouts. If you see the list of titles, just click on one of the titles and then click "open" and you should see the handout. Right now a couple of handout sites are having technical problems, but they should be fixed by later today. If you are still having problems please let us know and tell us which handout you are interested in reading and we will try to assist you. Thanks for visiting the blog.

  7. Presentation was fantastic. It was knowledgeable who attended the seminar.
