Emergency preparedness fair at YMCA

MONTEBELLO - Majority Leader Charles Calderon, who represents Downey in the 58th Assembly District, will host an emergency preparedness fair Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Montebello-Commerce YMCA in Montebello."Natural disasters can occur in California at any time. Crucial information and resources will be provided during this event that will prepare our communities for natural disasters, as well as other emergencies," said Calderon. "We especially encourage families to bring their children to the fair, as it will be both educational and fun-filled." Several community organizations and law enforcement agencies are scheduled to participate in the fair. The American Red Cross will conduct emergency preparedness training sessions, as well as a children's puppet show. The California Highway Patrol will take children's fingerprints, which the FBI and federal law enforcement officials use to identify children in crisis situations. The YMCA is located at 2000 W. Beverly Blvd. in Montebello.
