2022 Passport to Preparedness

Our first ever Passport to Preparedness Event will be held on Saturday, September 24th, 2022 from 11AM - 4PM. Located at our facility, Office of Emergency Management - 1662 W. Wyoming Ave., Hayden, this free event will be held primarily in our Emergency Operations Center.

Join us for various activities and booths promoting readiness while also enjoying a free hotdog and other goodies along the way. Once you have visited enough booths to fill your Preparedness Passport, enter it into a drawing to win one of many prizes!
