SafetyFest 2023 logo

Active safety learning exercises, presentations and exhibits by Paso Robles and SLO County First Responders, County Office of Emergency Services, CERT, Law Enforcement and Safety experts are featured in Downtown City Park.

May 24th – Paso Robles, CA. On Saturday June 3rd, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. PASOSafe™ and the City of Paso Robles Fire & Emergency Services and North SLO County CERT presents the 2nd Annual SafetyFest; offering music, hands-on safety activities, and important presentations, demonstrations, and exhibits from first responders, emergency services, law enforcement and the area’s top safety experts.

This year at SafetyFest, the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) for North San Luis Obispo County will provide a display of playhouse size homes, each devastated by disasters native to the area – wildfires, earthquakes, and floods. The primary objective of the display, Disasterville, is to provide event visitors with a visual diorama to educate them about the destruction caused by disasters and motivate them to prepare for disasters that will occur.

Throughout the day, motorists entering downtown from 101 South Spring Street exit will be directed to tune into event radio AM 1640 for event notifications and parking instructions. KJUG 98.1 will begin broadcasting live from the event at 11:00 am.
