Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, has a great FREE event for you.
“Come and join us for Get Ready in the Park 2011 on May 7th, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
This is an annual event held every year in Hawrelak Park during Emergency Preparedness Week, which is the first week in May.
Climb into the cockpit of a helicopter, sit in an ambulance, see search and rescue dogs in action, and learn how to use a fire extinguisher.
It’s all part of the fun of Get Ready in the Park.
The City of Edmonton and members of the emergency response network demonstrate how they are prepared to work with the citizens of Edmonton in the event of a crisis and how Edmontonians can get ready for a major emergency.
There’s plenty to see, do, learn and take-away from at this free family-focused event.
More than 25 exhibitors from municipal, provincial, federal, corporate and non-profit organizations are on site with demonstrations, interactive games and free giveaways for the whole family.”
