(Lander, Wyo.) – On Saturday, an Emergency Preparedness Fair will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Lander.
One of the organizers, JoAnn Shane, said the purpose of the fair is “just to help people be prepared for emergencies.”
“This is not a doomsday type of thing at all,” she added. Shane said the fair is for anyone wanting to prepare for anything from natural disasters to personal emergencies, noting some people don’t keep more than one week’s worth of food in their homes.
“Our church has always encouraged preparedness,” she said.
Roughly two dozen informational booths will be set up at the church covering a wide variety of topics. Among the topics to be covered are: solar cooking, green houses, raising livestock, raising bees, food storage, using food storage, fire preparedness, gardening, risk assessment, preparedness away from home, pet and farm animal care, ham radio, canning and dehydrating food.
The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The church is located on the 600 block of Cascade Street.
