Chinook Emergency Preparedness Fair draws a big crowd 

Shared from the DCHS Touching Base Newsletter  

DCHS’s Safety and Emergency Management Committee and King County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) teamed up to bring an Emergency Preparedness Fair to Chinook on Nov. 30, 2017.

The fair was a big hit, drawing more than 160 King County staff during the two-hour period. Attendees had the opportunity to get resources and learn from seven exhibitors:

  • King County OEM
  • Public Health
  • FMD Security
  • DNRP’s Flood Warning Center
  • Safety and Claims Management
  • Puget Sound Energy
  • Supply vendor American Preparedness

All exhibitors received a lot of traffic and engagement from attendees, who were appreciative of the resources (and swag!) offered. Attendees also had the opportunity to buy emergency supplies from supply vendor American Preparedness, as well as enter a drawing to win raffle prizes.

The Chinook Emergency Preparedness Fair was brought to you in part by DCHS’s Safety and Emergency Management Committee!
