Over 6,000 people from all over the City attend the Valley Disaster Preparedness Fair each year. Since stakeholders of nearly every NC attend, the team that plans the Fair has invited every Neighborhood Council to submit a short promo statement (150-200 words max) for inclusion in RSVP responses.
Each time someone registers for the Fair using an address within your NC boundaries, they’ll receive the info you provide, so they can learn more about your NC. You can include your website, meeting place/time, or whatever you like! (Text submissions only, please.)
Participating NCs will also receive a list of your stakeholders who register for the Fair, so you can keep them in the loop about your Council’s emergency preparedness, public safety, and resiliency plans and programs.
The sooner you can share your NC outreach messaging the better, as registration opened July 1 for the Oct 12th Disaster Preparedness Fair, so your messaging can start being shared as soon as you submit it. There is no need to agendize a discussion of this content; just use what you already have: Your website, meeting details, upcoming events or projects your NC is working on, board vacancies, etc. Send your NC outreach messages to Bill.Hopkins@SoCalPrep.us
