The Graton Fire Protection District will host a disaster preparedness fair on Saturday, the Sonoma Department of Emergency Management said.

The April 1 fair will have interactive activities for adults, seniors and children and will cover things such as household fire safety, CPR skills, trauma relief techniques and tips for preparing for disaster.

There will also be a bouncy house for kids, preparedness games and crafts, giveaways for a “go bag,” and displays of emergency vehicles and the Henry 1 helicopter.

There will also be booths set up from the County Department of Emergency Management, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, Graton and Sonoma County Fire Districts, the California Highway Patrol, Cal Fire, the American Red Cross, HALTER Project animal rescue, and more.

The fair takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Graton Fire Department, 3750 Gravestein Highway North, in Sebastopol.
