PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s neighborhood services department will host a free emergency preparedness presentation this Wednesday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, located at 38300 Sierra Hwy, Suite B.
Guest speakers from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department and the American Red Cross will provide information and handouts on what residents can expect during a major disaster and how to prepare now.
Home Town Buffet will provide refreshments at the conclusion.
“With hurricanes battering East Coast, fires in Montana, the Pacific Northwest and here in Southern California, as well as an 8.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico, it is clear that disasters can happen anywhere and many occur with little to no warning,” stated Crime Prevention Specialist Kery German. “Are you prepared?”
Whether it is a fire, flood, earthquake or some other kind of disaster, this presentation will offer how-to information, educational presentations and materials.
“September is ‘National Preparedness Month,’ which makes this the perfect time to talk about how to prepare for when—not if—a disaster strikes,” stated Crime Prevention Specialist Ruth Oschmann.
For questions or more information call 661-267-5170.
