The Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair will host a bloodmobile from Cedars-Sinai, Los Angeles. The bloodmobile will begin receiving donors at 9:00 am, which means that if you would like to give the gift of life at the Fair, you’ll be admitted to the Fair starting at 9:00 am (up to an hour early) so that you can proceed directly to donor screening. Priority Fair admission is our gift to blood donors. You can also schedule an appointment (see below) at the bloodmobile between 9:00 am and 2:30 pm.

To schedule your blood donation, learn more about who is eligible to donate blood, and the process of blood donation, visit the Fair website at

Please encourage your stakeholders, family, and friends to register and attend the Fair! Everything at the Fair is free, thanks to our generous supporters and contributors, including many Neighborhood Councils throughout the San Fernando Valley and beyond.

For more details, or if your NC would like to host an Outreach booth at the Fair, send an email to Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet with your stakeholders and possible recruit for any Board vacancies.

Thank you for helping all of Los Angeles get prepared for disasters and large-scale emergencies.
