First Orinda Wildfire Prevention and Safety Fair in Community Park, April 22

On Earth Day, April 22, the city of Orinda will host a public event at the Orinda Community Park from 9 a.m. to early afternoon. The First Orinda Wildfire Prevention and Safety Fair is aimed at letting the residents of Orinda meet the agencies and organizations that specialize or can provide resources to help them be less at risk from the damaging and life-threatening effects of wildfire.
There will be representatives from the Moraga-Orinda Fire District, California Department of Insurance, Orinda Firewise Council, Vulcan Vents, and more. The event is free and open to all. Children will be able to see and engage with some of the equipment used by these professionals (wildfire firetrucks, Utility Terrain Vehicles, etc.) There will also be other child-focused activities. Adults will be able to access resources, ask questions, and hear short talks given by local experts.
The fair will also be happening concurrently with the weekly farmers' market and food will be available at the market.
In addition, the Red Cross will be conducting a blood drive from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Community Center for any who would like to donate. The blood drive is sponsored by the Orinda Teen Advisory Council.

Earth Day is also the Annual Orinda Action Day of Community Service
Orinda's annual action day of service, when community members meet and lend a hand to help clean up and beautify the city, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 22. A T-shirt, snacks and light lunch will be provided to volunteers. The event is sponsored by the city of Orinda in partnership with the Orinda Community Foundation and Orinda Women's Club. Volunteers can sign up for a slot and meet at the Orinda Library Lower Plaza (adjacent to the community center). For more information and to sign up, please go to: http://www.orindafoundation.org/
