Home Safety Emergency Plan available!

What started out as the Disaster Preparation calendar project evolved into the Emergency Preparation Brochure Project, for which the Town received $2,100 in donations. We have purchased 1,500 of these brochures (pictured). The brochures were produced by the Salvation Army, and contain information and instructions on what to do during various home emergencies and natural disasters, and have a magnet on the back for attaching to a refrigerator to keep handy.

The brochures are now available at each business that contributed to the project, plus at Town Hall and the Police Department. This is a project of the Fairfax Citizens' Disaster Council.

Please join me in thanking the following businesses and organizations for their monetary support of this project to raise disaster preparedness awareness:

  • Marchant Chapman Realtors
  • Good Earth Natural Foods
  • Fairfax Lumber and Hardware Co.
  • Ross Valley Insurance Agency
  • Fairfax Police Officers' Association
  • Ross Valley Firefighters' Club

Please stop by the above businesses and pick up your free Emergency Plan brochure!
