CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – The 7th Annual Rogue Valley Emergency Resource Fair was held at the Jackson County Expo this afternoon.
Event organizers say the fair gives the community the chance each year to go out and learn more about local emergency services. It also gives people the opportunity to ask any questions they might have.
Local law enforcement until the robberies were just a few of the entities present.
Some emergency service agencies have also provided information on employment opportunities.
âPeople kind of see police cars and police and walk away from us, especially in this climate, if we’re accessible and want to make sure they know we are. We want to talk to them and let them get to know us, âsaid Phil Richardson, a senior Oregon State Police soldier.
If you missed this year’s event, you can still go next year.
More information can be found on the âRogue Valley – Emergency Resource Fairâ Facebook page.
