BE AWARE, BE PREPARED!
Join the Delta Protection Commission for a FREE event full of fun and cost-friendly flood preparedness and safety information tailored for Delta residents and its farms! This event is on the last day of the Delta Flood Preparedness Week, which runs from October 15-20. It will also be a kick-off event for CA Department of Water Resources for California Flood Preparedness Week from October 20-27.
This year we are partnering with the Sacramento County Library. In addition to the many valuable resources available, there will be a bookmobile, and kid’s lawn games (with prizes!) run by the Rio Vista Leos’ Club. Multiple emergency response vehicles, a U.S. Coast Guard boat, a Sacramento County Sherriff’s horse, and rescue dogs will also be on site. This is a chance for Delta residents to actually meet the people who may be saving their lives or property in case of a flood.
The presentation “Delta Tides” will be presented in the Library. This fun and engaging presentation for kids will use props to show how the sun and the moon interact with the ocean by creating the tides that flow into the Delta – shaping this unique region and the levees that protect it.
