The County Office of Emergency Management has prepared a Comprehensive Emergency Survival Guide intended to help residents of Los Angeles County better prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters. The Guide has 100 pages of helpful tips and information to prepare for fires, floods, earthquakes, pandemic flu, terrorism, extreme weather and tsunamis. There is space to record household emergency plans, out-of-state contacts, family evacuation gathering points and location of utility shutoffs. The Emergency Survival Guide also includes checklists for gathering emergency supplies that will help individuals, families, pet owners, and others survive and recover after an major emergency.
The Guide is available at lacounty.gov/emergency/emergency-survival-guide/ or by calling toll fee to the LA County 24-hour 2-1-1 number for emergency preparedness information and other referral services.
THE FUTURE REALLY DOES BELONG TO THOSE WHO PREPARE
