On Saturday, September 21, 2019, the cities of Lake Forest Park and Kenmore teamed up for the Northshore Preparedness and Safety Fair at Town Center in Lake Forest Park.

It was both inside and outside Town Center, with the Bloodworks bloodmobile in the parking lot outside the upper level along with Evergreen Health’s Mobile Mammography van.

Inside in Third Place Commons, local agencies came together to present emergency preparedness and safety information.

New Police Chief Mike Harden was there to talk to citizens. The Moulage Mayhem people were there to explain their role in making the active shooter drills more realistic for the responders.
