Loveland Emergency Preparedness and Family Safety Expo

Red Cross Mile High Family Safety Expo

On Saturday, Sept. 6, emergency responders, safety educators, and supporting agencies from around northern Colorado are assembling for the Annual Emergency Preparedness and Family Safety Expo, scheduled for 10 a.m.-2p.m. at The Ranch located 5280 Arena Circle, Loveland in the First National Bank North Exhibition Hall.

This family-friendly, informational and activity-filled exposition is designed to help local families and businesses learn how to be prepared for emergencies and protect themselves from accidents before they happen, and to know what to do when they do happen.

Important preparedness and safety information is delivered through fun and interactive demonstrations that will not only entertain but inform the whole family. Exhibitors will demonstrate emergency response equipment and provide free information on a wide variety of safety and preparedness topics.

There will be safety mascots for the kids to meet; and there will be drawings for dozens of free give-a-ways. The first 200 attendees are eligible to receive a free, mini 72-hour kit.
