An outdoor safety fair on Friday evening helped the Latino Emergency Council celebrate its 10th anniversary in Modesto.

The family-geared event at the Apostolic Jubilee Center on Lassen Avenue included entertainment as well as displays and presentations from public safety agencies from across the region, including the Modesto Police and Stanislaus County Sheriff’s departments.

The fair was presented by the Apostolic Jubilee Center and Modesto City Schools in partnership with the Latino Emergency Council. The council is a nonprofit organization that focuses on emergency preparedness training to help the Latino community be self-sufficient in disasters.

The council works in partnership with the Stanislaus County Office of Emergency Services in disaster situations.
