Female Founder Launches Expo to Bring Coloradans Up to Speed on Emergency Preparedness

Over the past year, we’ve seen a number of natural disasters, from the wildfires in Colorado and along the West Coast, to the floods in Texas, and the hurricanes hitting Puerto Rico and nearby islands. Each of these moments provides a reminder of the importance of preparedness and developing the knowledge, skills, and strategies, along with having the tools to protect our families and communities and develop resilience when these challenging moments occur.

Kiki Bandilla, CEO of the National Self-Reliance Project is part of a movement centered on educating individuals on how to prepare their families and communities for emergencies. Her event, The Self-Reliance & Simple Life Experience hosted in Denver this month, provides attendees with informative workshops, panel discussions and an expo floor offering hands-on learning.

“The unfortunate reality is emergencies will happen and therefore it’s so important to be knowledgeable about how we should respond and prepare for these challenges when they occur, offering great peace-of-mind,” said Kiki Bandilla, President of the National Self Reliance Project. “The incredible mix of presenters and exhibitors will provide attendees with the unique opportunity to learn essential life skills that so many of us have forgotten thanks to our modern conveniences and technology. But what happens when those modern conveniences and technology fail us? That’s where self-reliance skills will save lives and encourage independence, and guide our citizens, families, and communities, along the path of more empowered and intentional lives. Attendees will  learn essential life tools they can pass down for generations.”

This family-friendly event will be held on Saturday, September 22 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, September 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets, booths, and sponsorships are available at www.selfrelianceexpo.com.
