In the Bay Area, we all know we should have disaster kits at the ready, but who has time to assemble all the items on their own? Go MacGyver with us at the SPUR Urban Center and assemble your own portable disaster kit while hearing from experts about disaster preparedness. We’ll provide essential supplies such as flashlights, first-aid kits, whistles, emergency blankets, gloves, water sanitation supplies and more. Everyone will go home with a portable disaster kit that they created, a chance to win prizes in our raffle and a better understanding of how we can build a culture of preparedness across the Bay Area.

Raffle prizes include survival knives, bags from Chrome, Incase and Crumpler, family-sized medical kits and other great items.
