Maricopa County Public Health Partners with Metrocenter Mall and Univision to host a FREE Emergency Preparedness Expo on Sep. 11th

 

PHOENIX (August 22, 2013) – Maricopa County Department of Public Health’s Office of Preparedness and Response in partnership with Metrocenter Mall and first responders will celebrate National Preparedness month with a multicultural emergency preparedness expo. This year’s theme You Can Be the Hero – Usted Puede Ser el Heroe reminds the community about the importance of personal preparedness.

The Expo will give residents tools to be prepared for potential emergencies with classes being offered in first aid and evacuation planning as well as information tables about how to become an organ & tissue donor, how to protect important documents, brain injury prevention and much more. In addition, Phoenix Fire will have a smoke house so children and adults can be part of a drill and learn to evacuate in case of smoke or fire. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn about the Affordable Care Act and the uninsured can get FREE flu and Tdap immunizations.

“We are appreciative to have 15 partner agencies come together to assist us in teaching residents about how to better prepare themselves and their families for any type of emergency – large or small,” said Dr. Bob England, Maricopa County Public Health Director.
