CLEPP Hosts Safety Fair at HQ
October 27, 2014
Getting Prepared For an Emergency!
On Wednesday, October 15, 2014, the Community/Law Enforcement Partnership Programs Unit (CLEPP) and its supporting staff organized the first-ever Preparedness and Safety Fair. The event was set up in the parking lot in front of Sheriff's Headquarters Building with vendors and demonstrations offered under canopies.
The Safety Preparedness Fair included a free opportunity drawing of safety items, like a 72-hour emergency supply kit, generously donated by participating vendors. Six lucky employees won drawings for free emergency supply kits to assist in the safety and care of their families and communities in the event of an emergency.
There was no shortage of variety at the fair! Los Angeles County Fire Department Lifeguard Division personnel provided sidewalk demonstrations and lessons for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Safety vendors offered health protection sample items like face masks and sanitizing gel, and information about ham radio operation, earthquake survival and mobile video surveillance devices. Among the highlights were the Sheriff's Communications Center Mobile Communications Unit, Altadena Emergency ALERT Radio Team, Grainger, National Safety Association, National Emergency Alert Group, Safe N' Ready, Be More Prepared, and Emergency Medical Services preparedness. Members of the Los Angeles County Office of Emergency Management and representatives from the 3M Company were on hand to offer their safety tips.
With the Great California Shake-Out drill scheduled for the next day, October 16, 2014, the CLEPP team seized the opportunity to line-up a collection of presenters and vendors with valuable information. You can never be too prepared; it is your lifeline in "Act of God" situations.
