AARP AARP States Alaska Events

In Case of Emergency, Be Prepared


September is Emergency Preparedness Month—perfect timing for the 2017 Emergency Preparedness Expo in Mat-Su Valley. Cosponsored by AARP Alaska, the free expo is Saturday, Sept. 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Menard Sports Center, 1001 S. Clapp St., Wasilla.

Exhibits will include an Earthquake Cottage, which mimics the tremors that strike Alaska about 1,000 times a month; a “fashion show” of personal flotation devices; and an interactive firehouse. The first 100 adults to arrive will receive an emergency preparedness bag.
