Emergency Preparedness Fair In Columbia Valley

The old Windermere Fire Hall will be the hub of activity May 2nd as the Emergency Preparedness Fair runs from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

It’s a free event and there will be demonstrations, draw prizes, and activities for the kids (including a bouncy castle). Representatives from BC Ambulance, the RCMP, Columbia Valley Search & Rescue, Wildfire Management Branch and the RDEK Emergency Program will all be participating and showcasing a wide range of rescue equipment. From a hovercraft and RCMP boat to the Jaws of Life, it will all be on display.

In addition to the equipment and information booths, there will be demonstrations of rescue skills, a fingerprint team on hand and a station where people can assemble their own 72 hour kit. Every family will receive a free binder to help get them started with their emergency preparedness plans.

For more information, call 250-347-9043.
