The free, half-day event will offer preparedness information. Free preparedness items, including weather radios and first aid kits, will be distributed while supplies last.

Attendees will be able to speak to emergency response and recovery experts from the Orange County Office of Emergency Management. Representatives will answer questions and provide information on how to respond to flooding, high-wind damage and property loss.

Participants will also learn how to track storms, pack a disaster kit and prepare an emergency plan for themselves and their pets.
