The Los Angeles County Fire Department presents “Living in the Fire Zone” Fire Expo from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 15, at Fire Station 118, 17056 Gale Ave. in the city of Industry. Admission is free. Refreshments will be available.
The department has a new “Wildland Fire Protection Initiative” program to be unveiled at the expo. The program is designed to educate the public about decisions and actions that need to be taken by firefighters during a disaster.
The expo will provide guidance and direction especially for homeowners who may become trapped and cannot evacuate. Vendors will be on hand to give information, products and demonstrations.
Products will include basic emergency supplies, personal protective equipment and portable fire suppression systems. Presentations include Fire Department operations, vegetation management and building standards.
If a homeowner decides to stay in the event of a fire, the department wants to be sure it is an informed decision with proper preparation.
Representatives from the American Red Cross, California Highway Patrol and L.A. County Animal Care and Control will also be on hand.
