The public is invited to the second annual Emergency Preparedness Fair hosted by Interactive Neighborhood for Kids.
INK will recognize National Emergency Preparedness Month with the event from 1-4 p.m. Sunday at 999 Chestnut St., Suite 11, in Gainesville. The event is designed to increase knowledge of preparing for a natural disaster.
“September is Emergency Preparedness Month, and that’s for preparing for emergencies such as hurricanes, tornadoes, just acts of nature,” said Charles Bramwell, director of operations for INK. “It’s making people aware of preparing themselves and having things ready for emergencies that may happen in our area.”
Last year’s inaugural event drew more than 1,000 visitors, Bramwell said. He expects this year’s event to be bigger.
The event will include a variety of activities and games for kids and personal preparedness tips and demonstrations for the whole family. Guests will also leave with a selection of gifts from sponsors.
“We’re going to have free admission for families that come to INK on Sunday, and we’ll be handing out backpacks,” Bramwell said. “Many of our supporters and sponsors will have tables set up in the museum. As they go through the museum with the backpacks they get at the door, they’ll get different items from the sponsors.”
