About 65 individuals attended the event to hear about how seniors and individuals can prepare for an emergency. We passed out goodie bags which included many items that individuals can use in an emergency, including a flashlight, emergency blanket, first aid kit, and water. We raffled off 2-day and 3-day emergency kits, which have enough supplies to keep someone safe after an emergency hits.
The event was a great success. We are thankful for the Menlo Park Senior Center for hosting us, all of our presenters and vendors, and the City of Menlo Park for sponsoring the event. We are looking forward to our next Emergency Preparedness Event later this year in San Bruno. Stay tuned for more information to come!
