The Rapture may be a let down (Saturday isn't over yet...), but we still do live atop earthquake central and being prepared for a variety of natural and unnatural disasters is part of the deal. Today, The Los Angeles Police Department and The Los Angeles Fire Department are holding an Emergency Preparedness Fair until 1:00 p.m. at Helen Bernstein High School, 1309 North Wilton Place, Los Angeles 90028, to help with all your pre-apocalyptic needs.

Several of the public service entities within the City of Los Angeles have joined together to educate the community on being prepared in the event of a natural, or man made, disaster. Admission and parking will be free. Over a dozen informational booths will be manned with participants providing information and educational materials, as well as demonstrations by First Responders, speaking on preparedness topics. The public will have an opportunity to see and explore several of the emergency service vehicles.
