Community involvement

How to get people involved in their community in a fun and entertaining way

1. create a geocaching contest throughout the parks and points of interest in Fairview using QR codes.   Find a way to utilize Fairview website to people can track their find and progress.  provide prizes and points with a leader boards.

2. create a variation for Fairview businesses.  scan a track progress.  award points and prizes.   Perhaps have the business give out discounts or trinkets

3. Fairview sign selfie contest.   Points and prizes…  rotating slideshow on the Fairview website

Emergency Preparedness

Couple of things:

- City of Fairview needs a new Public works building that is earth quake proof.  In doing so,  The city should create a city emergency disaster facility.  Storage of Backup communication,  Stores of Food and supplies.   Maybe we already have one and its a closely guarded secret.  

- As the Volunteer grows.  They are plenty of examples of communities that have Community Emergency Response teams.

I have always had a bug about keeping an emergency Kit.  Unfortunately, not everyone does.  City should be prepared
