ABOUT THE SOUTH DAVIS EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FAIR

The South Davis Emergency Preparedness Fair is an event that is presented by the cities in South Davis County (Centerville, Bountiful, West Bountiful, Woods Cross and North Salt Lake) every two years to encourage preparedness and educate residents on ways to prepare for emergencies and disasters, whether natural, man-made or economic.

We partner with public safety organizations such as the South Davis Metro Fire Department and local police agencies, as well as the National Guard, because in the event of an emergency or disaster we’ll be working closely with them.

One of our most popular parts of the fair two years ago were table  top demonstrations on preparedness topics that were thought up and displayed by the local preparedness districts (stake organizations).
