A year and a half ago the idea came to me to have a preparedness event, thanks to my partner. From their the ideas started flowing and it all turned into the Prepare + Survive Expo! This event has been a labor of love, hard work and dedication and knowing that bringing together local preparedness experts for an afternoon of education and products would help unite the community. We will need to work together when something big happens. Whether that’s a natural disaster such as an earthquake, major power outage, etc we all need to be ready. Prepping can be overwhelming, I know! This is why Prepare + Survive was created. To take the guess work out of it and make it something that is fun and easy.
Join us today from 1-5pm at Buchan Hall at 1226 SW Salmon Street, for an afternoon of speakers, raffle prizes (money raised donated to Oregon Food Bank), products and community. We look forward to having you here! Below is a list of presenters, space is limited for them so please arrive early to get a seat. Tickets for sale at the door, adults $10 and kids 16 and under get in for free.
