For years you’ve heard that you need to plan in the event of a natural disaster and for years you’ve said, “I’ll get to it someday.” Maybe you don’t know where to start or what you need to be prepared?

This FREE event will feature interactive vendor booths, demonstrations and seminars to help you better assist your family and the community in the event of a natural disaster.





The 5th Annual Preparedness Expo is proud to introduce the world’s biggest mobile earthquake simulator, THE BIG SHAKER! This 24’ long 8,000 lb. hydraulic trailer realistically demonstrates an earthquake up to 8.0 magnitude! Earthquakes are the most likely natural threats for SLO County residents, and this simulator recreates conditions similar to those that would be experienced in a typical SLO County home during an earthquake. The Big Shaker will be on site shaking things up and educating the public about the importance of securing items and other elements of earthquake safety. The best defense is to be prepared!
