September 21, 2013, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Disaster Preparedness Expo is an annual event helping the public to learn about, understand and prepare for possible future disasters ranging from earthquakes to tsunamis.

  • Huntington Beach Police Department
  • Huntington Beach Fire Department Urban Search & Rescue (USAR)
  • FireMed
  • National Weather Service
  • American Red Cross
