The rain didn't keep away hundreds of people from visiting the Family Safety and Preparedness expo in Bridgeport.

Emergency officials taught workshops about how to prepare your family if there's a crisis. They even had a class about canning. Dozens of different organizations were there to give away free supplies, pamphlets and prizes.

Organizers said this event helps people to know what to do during any type of disaster. This in turn helps emergency officials because it keeps them from being overloading.

Bridgeport Police Chief John Walker said, "Bridgeport's taken a very aggressive approach and active role in teaching our community about how to be prepared. We have many facets of that here today. We've had a lot of good feedback on this and we're just excited."

They're hoping to make this an annual event.
