Come to the City of Malibu’s Public Safety and Preparedness Expo, Saturday, June 15, and learn how you can get yourself, your family and your neighborhood better prepared for wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters.
Following the devastation of the Woolsey Fire, the Malibu community has a unique opportunity to come together and emerge stronger, better prepared and more resilient than before. One of the best ways to prepare for wildfires, earthquakes and other disasters as individuals, families and a community is to get trained in first aid and emergency preparedness, make emergency plans, and stock up on the right kind of supplies that you will need to survive without help for 72 hours or more in case of a major disaster.
Saturday, June 15
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Trancas Country Market
30745 Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu
