Lubbock hosts annual Preparedness Fair

Posted: Updated:

Are you prepared for natural and financial disasters? Where will you go in an emergency? What will you do?

Lubbock citizens had the chance to get their questions answered on Saturday at this year's Lubbock Preparedness Fair, held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on Frankford Ave.

The American Red Cross, Community Emergency Response Team, Water Conservation and even Agricultural Gardening were there to help educate people about emergency preparation.

Brett Antczak, an exhibitor and speaker at the event, said that this kind of preparation doesn't always have to mean the end of the world.

"Most folk are looking at emergency preparedness as the doomsday preppers, as the extremist sort of thing," he said, "but really, being prepared has more to do with isolating your family from the normal things that interrupt your daily life."

Antczak said it's important to have items for sanitation, sleeping arrangements and medical supplies on hand, just in case.
