Online Registration for the 10th Annual Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair Open

Online registration for the 10th Annual Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair (the largest in Los Angeles) is now open.  Please encourage your stakeholders to register and attend by visiting www.ValleyDisasterFair.com. Registration will also be available at the Fair.

Registrants will receive a personalized email with a Welcome Letter that will include information about the registrant’s Council District and Neighborhood Council, specific to the address provided during the registration process. We invite all NCs to write a short message (150-200 words) to your stakeholders that will be included in the Welcome Letter. This is a valuable opportunity to communicate with your stakeholders, to let them know what you are doing for the community, and to encourage them to get involved. All we need is your message, and we’ll take care of the rest. Please email your message to Bill Hopkins (Bill.Hopkins@SoCalPrep.us) right away.

In addition to this Welcome Letter outreach opportunity, you may also host an Outreach booth at the Fair. Space is limited, and it’s First Come, First Served for booth reservations.

For more details, contact Bill Hopkins, Valley Disaster Preparedness Team Chair at Bill.Hopkins@SoCalPrep.us. We expect over 3,500 people to attend this year’s Fair. Don’t miss this great opportunity to communicate with your stakeholders.

Thank you for helping all our stakeholders get prepared for disasters.

The 10th Annual Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Visit www.ValleyDisasterFair.com for more information and online registration. A Save The Date flyer can be downloaded here.
