The presentation starts at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, located at 38300 Sierra Highway Suite B.
This event will offer how-to information, an educational presentation and materials on how to prepare for an emergency. Guest speakers from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the Sheriff’s Department, the American Red Cross and other organizations will be present.
“Being properly prepared for an emergency is important and a must for all residents,” stated Crime Prevention Officer Kery German. “Imagine that you have no electricity, no gas and no water. Imagine that all the businesses are closed or have nothing left on their shelves. In a major disaster it may be several days before help arrives. Do you and your family have enough food, water and other necessities to ‘shelter in place’ for a minimum of three days?”
“Because Southern California is prone to earthquakes, everyone should be prepared for one,” German stated. “And if you’re properly prepared for an earthquake, you’re prepared for most natural disasters, such as fires or floods.”
“Remember, it’s never too early to prepare but it can be too late,” German added.
