The inaugural Lowcountry Family Preparedness Fair in 2013 was a huge success and we are looking forward to the 2014 version on September 6, 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m.

As the venue worked well last year, the Fair will again be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building and grounds at 1519 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in Charleston (West Ashley).

But first, a huge expression of gratitude is given to all of the sponsors, exhibitors, speakers & vendors that helped make the 2013 Fair a success. You can view them in the gallery.  Each organization helped establish a solid footing for the future. We are committed to work as a leader in the community in preparing families for emergencies, and we are excited about the improvements to this year’s Fair.

The primary focus for 2014 was preparing for emergencies - living in the Lowcountry, there is no shortage of possible emergency considerations. But, our goals embrace preparedness on a much broader scale and as we move forward, we intend to incorporate additional important areas of preparation.

These areas of preparation include:

 emergencies

 health

 employment & finances

 food storage

 education

As we plan for the future Fairs, we intend to add these areas of focus. To do that, we need the support of community experts in these areas and look with eagerness to engender meaningful relationships in the coming months that will ultimately help create stronger communities in the Lowcountry.

If you have expert experience in these areas of preparation, please consider linking arms with us and make a commitment to share with the community!
