Milpitas Emergency Preparedness Fair

Start Date: 09/21/2019


The Milpitas Emergency Preparedness Fair was a small gathering of about 6 different agencies providing information for preparing in an emergency. We were set up on a grass area where there was some shade. We walked around before the fair started and made contact with other tables that were present. The general public came through and would come to pet the dogs. Most of the petters were under the age of 5. As the kids were petting, we educated the parents about what HOPE is and does. We also educated folks about the difference between therapy and service animals. The fair was not very busy. Both HOPE team members had a lot of time to bounce HOPE and other dog related topics off of each other.
