We're excited that Smokey Bear will be at this year's Emergency Preparedness Fair on September 10! He visited us last year and we invited him back. Found out July 12 he is confirmed. Woohoo!

Hays County 5th Annual

Emergency Preparedness Fair

Ready. Prep. Go.

Building a stronger, more resilient community.

The Hays County Emergency Preparedness Fair is an event that aims to help area residents be ready for just about any emergency. The fair, hosted by the Hays County Office of Emergency Services (OES), brings together vendors, first responders, and other emergency preparedness experts for a day of classes, how-tos, and demonstrations along with food, live music, a silent auction and raffle, plus much more. 

This year is our 5th anniversary for the fair. The fifth year anniversary gift is typically wood, which is an image you'll see a lot this year. We are working to grow a stronger, more resilient community. OES is establishing deep roots in Hays County and we can't do it without our residents!

This year's event theme is Ready. Prep. Go.

These clever, creative baskets might contain items needed after a power outage, flood or perhaps things that are needed if someone has to leave their home due to an evacuation order or natural disaster. Raffle tickets benefit BR3T
