The Pocatello Community Emergency Preparedness Fair has evolved into the “Community Resilience Fair” to better explain the approach to preparedness and recovery. The fair will be Tuesday, September 13th from 3 pm to 8 pm at the Pine Ridge Mall, 4155 Yellowstone Highway in Chubbuck. The fair will feature demonstrations, educational classes and displays on many aspects of community resilience. Community resilience is the ability of a community to utilize available resources to respond to, withstand, and recover from adverse situations. Human-caused disasters and natural disasters are more frequent and costly. Severe weather events have brought disaster to greater numbers of people in recent years. The Resilience Fair will combine what we know about preparing for disasters with what we know about actions that strengthen communities. Vendors will have information on topics ranging from defensible space for homeowners, to food storage to financial planning. There will be products to purchase along with displays and live classes.
