Emergency Preparedness Adventure - Photos

Stumble Upon Toolbar
The 433rd attended the Emergency Preparedness Adventure Day and a great time was had by all.

There was an opening sing song, followed by the unveiling of the new Emergency Preparedness Award (Cubs) and Badge (Scouts). The Provinces Emergency Mobile Operations Center was there. And the Armed Forces communications and rescue teams too.

We learned about first aid and what to pack in our emergency kits.

The Fire Marshall's office was there with their Hazmat gear. The OPP bomb robot was checking hats too. :-)

There were some great giveaways including a very cool flashlight that could work on several common types of batteries. It also had feet so it wouldn't roll away. (Oddly the above link was one of the few local stores with the light on their web site).

Probably the favorite event of the day was the OPP response team's bomb watermelon disruptor!
