Flood Preparedness Funfair

Saturday, October 27, 2018
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Miller Regional Park
2701 Marina View Drive, Sacramento, CA

Discover what you need to know to prepare your family for a flood at the City of Sacramento’s Flood Preparedness Funfair. As part of Flood Preparedness Week, this event will have hands-on activities, interactive flood displays, and food trucks. Learn how to fill sandbags, find your evacuation routes, sign up for emergency alerts, and watch rescuers in action as they perform water rescues.

City departments will have equipment used during a flood on display for everyone to check out and interact with, including:

  • Excavator
  • Police Helicopter
  • Fire Trucks
  • Water Rescue Boats
  • Garage Truck
  • Vacuum Truck
  • Police Command Center
  • “The Claw”

Pets are part of the family too! Learn how to keep them safe during an emergency. Representatives from our public safety and animal shelter team will also be on-hand with their four-legged friends sharing valuable information.

This event will be held in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), California Department of Water Resources (DWR), and Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD).
