First Responders Fair

Everyone is invited to the First Responders Fair next Saturday, September 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Honolulu Hale Civic Center Grounds. The fair will have more than a dozen activities and displays, such as police K9s, bomb squad robots, a speed and quickness clinic, and kupuna and keiki ID cards.

As a special feature, teams of artists will be painting fire safety messages on forty-eight 4'x 8' plywood panels beginning at 10 a.m. The panels will be displayed at Oahu fire stations as part of Fire Prevention Week in October.

"There are a lot of steps that residents can take to prepare for emergencies and disasters," said Mayor Kirk Caldwell. "The First Responders Fair is a way to present vital and potentially lifesaving information to the public in a fun, interesting way."

In addition to the activities and displays, there will also be food trucks, keiki rides, and live music.

The fair is free and open to the public. Free parking is available at the Frank Fasi Municipal Building parking structure. Vehicles can enter from Alapai or Beretania Streets.
