Launched in 2014, READY Long Beach is a citywide outreach effort promoting emergency preparedness and readiness to the whole community. Sanctioned by the City of Long Beach and partnered with numerous city agencies, Ready Long Beach 2014 drew thousands of attendees from all social, economic, ethnic, age, and gender groups. 


The READY Long Beach Expo is a prime marketplace for emergency preparedness merchandise and non-profit vendors alike. Held on an annual basis, the READY Long Beach Expo provides a family-friendly atmosphere in an outdoor setting; convenient for vendors of all sizes and accessible to a multitude of consumers.


In 2017, the Long Beach CERT program was awarded the FEMA Outstanding Community Emergency Response Team Initiatives Award for our efforts in increasing community preparedness and resiliency through READY Long Beach. We are excited to continue our efforts at this annual event!
