Eastside Fire and Rescue, local CERT, NorCom, the Red Cross and the Forest Service invite locals to a fun and educational safety expo.

Food, safety-related prizes and fun are on tap, with presentations at 9:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1:15 p.m.

There’ll be a kid’s area with activities, booths with information for you and your family, fire truck, a fire extinguisher station and more.

Firefighters will also be collecting food and donations for the Snoqualmie Valley Food bank.

The event aims to teach locals how to prepare for emergencies, how to stay safe and have fun doing it. The U.S. Department of Forestry will be on hand to give tips on hiking safety. The Grange is close to the Little Si trail, so locals can test out their newly learned knowledge right away.

Additionally, the event will help locals learn about CERT and how to be CERT certified. Attendees will be able to see what supplies are needed for their home emergency kit, and what supplies are needed for a neighborhood.

There will be demonstrations and information on what to do in case of fire, earthquakes, floods and how to safely turn off the gas to a home and how to safely turn it back on. And when that’s necessary, and when it isn’t a good idea. The event hopes to inform attendees on how to find out what to say and not say if they need to call 911 for adults and kids. Kids can learn how to protect themselves and their families in playful ways.

“Planning saves Lives – Planning Prevents Panic” will feature information on how to help neighborhoods organize and set up emergency plans will be given. The event will also teach how to create an exit plan for family and pets in various situations.

Additionally, firefighters will be raffling off two tickets to a concert with Tinkham Road, on June 23. They’ll bring their locally inspired music to the Sallal Grange stage, along with stories and theatrics.

Frankie’s Pizza, home baked goods and refreshments will be available.
