SATURDAY, JUNE 1st 10:00-3:00 
The Downtown City Park Features Emergency, Disaster and Safety Preparedness Training Exercises, Hands-on learning Activities from City, County, State, Federal First Responders, Law Enforcement, and Private Safety Experts.

Saturday June 1st, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PASOSafe™, The City of Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services, Police Department, and North SLO County CERT present the Third Annual SafetyFest; offering emergency and disaster training exercises, demonstrations and hands-on learning activities by First Responders and the area’s top safety professionals.
SafetyFest, is the only event in the North County that offers comprehensive safety expertise from city, county, state, federal, nonprofit and private entities in one place. Earthquake, fire, flood, tsunami, emergency & disaster simulation, crime prevention, motor vehicle safety, cybersecurity, mental health and personal safety exercises are featured in the Downtown City Park.
“SafetyFest is a fun and engaging way to bring everyone in the community to learn and participate,” said Fire Captain/Paramedic John Pricket of Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services. “Each year we expand our educational and training exercises for all aspects of fire prevention, emergency and disaster preparation and response,” he added.
Proceeds support the North San Luis Obispo Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), a public beneficiary program that educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact our community and trains them in basic disaster response skills. “This event helps our local CERT program expand our training classes and increase our base of volunteers trained to assist in an emergency,” said John Spooner Volunteer Program Manager of North SLO County CERT.
“This year, we will provide additional disaster preparedness training for the public.  In addition to the 20-hour CERT Basic training classes we will offer pet safety and other specialty emergency and disaster training.  Winter storms the past two seasons increased the need for CERT response, so we are increasing the number of qualified team members.  This will require the purchase of additional equipment, more supplemental training classes, and additional certified instructors,” he added.
SafetyFest exhibit spaces are available in the Park for $100. Nonprofit spaces are $50. Safety-related organizations and businesses are encouraged to submit an exhibitor application.  Bilingual exhibitor entries are encouraged and supported.
