People in San Luis Obispo are a little more prepared for a natural disaster after this morning's Preparedness Expo.
Hundreds of people came to the San Luis Obispo Veteran's Hall for the third annual event.
The goal is to better prepare the community for an emergency.
People could learn from vendors selling emergency products, volunteer organizations and presentations at the expo.
"The more people that are prepared for a disaster, the less people we have to help and the more people that can help others," Red Cross Disaster Volunteer Paul Deis said. "If something happens tomorrow, there will be a whole lot more people prepared than there were this morning."
The first 200 people through the doors received a gift bag with disaster materials.
