Join us From 5:30-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 24, LO Maintenance Center
Learn how to care for yourself and your family in the event of an earthquake, flood, winter storm, or other disaster at the Emergency Preparedness Fair.
Brought to you by the City of Lake Oswego, this free family-friendly event will feature approximately 20 informational booths plus programs and activities. Stop by 17601 Pilkington Road any time between 5:30-7:30 p.m. and learn about water storage and emergency food options, emergency supply kits, pet preparedness, portable sanitation, seismically retrofitting your home, solar power options, how to fill a sand bag, and much more! You'll also get to meet one of our K9's and learn how to save a life at special hands-only CPR training. Plus, we will have TRUCKS! At this event kids get an up-close look at vehicles they see every day in the community - a fire truck, police vehicles, snow plow, street sweeper, water truck and more!
Water Container & Bag Giveaway
To prepare for an emergency, it is recommended that people store one gallon of water per person (and pet) per day for a minimum of 14 days. To help residents meet this goal, the City will be giving away approximately 300 BPA-free 3-gallon water containers (limit of one per Lake Oswego household, while supplies last). In addition, we are giving away one-gallon soft-sided water bags. Add this one-gallon bag to your emergency kit, and use it to get water from a distribution center in an emergency.
