Plan for disaster at the Emergency Preparedness Fair

The Sacramento State Environmental Health and Safety department and the University Police will sponsor an Emergency Preparedness Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13 in the Redwood Room of the University Union. The event coincides with National Emergency Preparedness Week from Sept. 11 to 17 and is open to the public.

The free event will feature several local agencies providing information about proper safety procedures and emergency information including the university's Health and Safety, Nursing, and Police departments, and the Student Health Center. The Sacramento County Public Health Department, Police Department, Homeland Security, and Metro Fire Department, as well as the American Red Cross, Cintas Fist Aid and Safety, and PG&E will also be on hand.

"Our goal is to increase awareness of the importance of personal preparedness for emergencies," said Staci Louie of the Environmental Health and Safety department who is organizing the event.
