Is the event still taking place?
Yes. The fourth annual Heroes of Health and Safety Fair will take place as scheduled at the Lake County Fairgrounds, 401 Martin St., Lakeport on Saturday, October 14th from 10 a.m. — 3 p.m.
How are you dealing with poor air quality?
The majority of booths and vendors will be located indoors, where hospital-grade HEPA filters will help purify the air. Masks will also be provided to attendees.
However, participants are advised to monitor their health, take frequent breaks if needed, and avoid the outdoors if necessary. People who should consider staying home include those with existing respiratory problems like asthma or COPD.
What resources will be available for fire victims?
Fire victims who are currently sheltered at the Lakeport Community Seventh Day Adventist church can ride Lake County Transit for free to and from the Fair.
On-site legal and insurance services will help connect fire victims to the resources they need. Pharmacists will also be on hand to answer medication-related questions and concerns.
