Priest River Preparedness EXPO

Coming to Priest River, Idaho on March 19!  The Priest River Preparedness Expo is an incredible opportunity to learn from the numerous training sessions by experienced presenters and browse the selection of vendor booths.  If you are want to be prepared for natural disasters, economic troubles, health crisis, or any other emergency, then this is one event you cannot afford to miss!

Our first year was a tremendous success and we ended up with way more people and vendors than we could reasonably fit in our previous venue. So we have secured the Priest River Junior High School Gym this year. We can’t wait to see you all again – bring a friend!
