Start the New Year off right, by setting some goals to better protect your family. PERC, the Peñasquitos Emergency Response Council will be hosting a free Community Preparedness Fair on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Hilltop Park, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  It will be a family friendly event with hands-on activities for all ages. The stated purpose of the Council was not to replace any group or existing plan, but to coordinate all efforts in order to provide the greatest sense of community and security possible for all who live and work in the Plan area. The Council believes that in the strength of friends and neighbors, we all stand the best chance of surviving a major event. The Fair will include classes, activities, and information to help your family be more prepared in the event of an emergency situation. Visit for more information.
