Clark College hosts Emergency Preparedness Fair May 2

Table from the 2011 Emergency Preparedness Fair

Do you know what to do in case of an earthquake, flood or other natural disaster? On Wednesday, May 2, Clark College will host a “how-to” emergency preparedness fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Gaiser Student Center on Clark’s main campus. During the event, students, faculty, staff and others will learn how to make self-sufficiency kits for use at home, school, work, and while travelling. Experts will be on hand to show what goes into a kit and how to prepare for disasters.

Fair participants include the American Red Cross of Southwest Washington, Clark College’s Campus Community Emergency Response Team (C-CERT) and Emergency Management Planning Committee, IQ Credit Union, Medical Reserve Corps, and others. The event, which is sponsored by Clark’s Emergency Management Planning Committee, is free and open to the public. Clark College is located at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver. Driving directions and parking maps are available at www.clark.edu/maps. For more information about the fair, contact Jordan Toews at 360-992-2650.
