National Disaster Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month

September 2014

 

 

Would you be ready if there was an emergency? Be prepared: throughout September there will be activities across the country to promote emergency preparedness.

Check out this week's National Preparedness Flyer

 

Week 3: How To:

 

Build an Emergency Kit

 

Whether you are sheltering in place or forced to evacuate at a moment’s notice, take steps now to create an emergency supply kit of food, water and other supplies to last at least 72 hours (and up to two weeks). You should have emergency kits for your home, office, school, and vehicle. You never know where you will be during an emergency.  It’s good to involve all members of the family while assembling your kit. Among others, consider special requirements of the elderly, pets, people with access and functional needs, and young children
 
 
Resources

It’s easy enough to find packaged emergency kits at local and on-line retailers. An economical option is to prepare your own kit. FEMA has great ideas to get you started.

What if you have to leave and leave quickly? Which photographs will you take? Where are you passports and birth certificates? Find out which important, hard-to-replace documents you’ll want to prepare in advance and how.

Did you know the minimum recommended amount of water is one gallon per person, per day? Have you considered how much you’ll need for drinking, cooking, and hygiene? Learn more about storing food and water supplies, courtesy of the American Red Cross

Policy Cafe Series

Policy Café, October 17th

20 Years of Partnership: Advancing LA County Health

Please join us for our next Policy Cafe with Zev Yaroslavsky, L.A. County Supervisor, Third District.

During a career in public life spanning nearly four decades, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has been at the forefront of Los Angeles County’s biggest issues, from transportation to the environment to health care to the arts. He has been a pioneering advocate for the region’s homeless population and has played a key role in efforts to reform the county’s law enforcement agencies.


In the area of social and human services, Yaroslavsky has launched a series of groundbreaking initiatives that have measurably improved life for individuals and families on the margins of society. For example, he is bringing innovative school-based health clinics to largely working-class neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley, where many residents are living below the poverty line and rarely seek medical attention. One of those is based on the Sun Valley Middle School campus, while two more are being constructed at Monroe and San Fernando high schools. Yaroslavsky also has been credited with helping to restore the lives of the region’s chronically homeless through his widely praised Project 50 program and its spinoffs, which have provided permanent supportive housing for hundreds of people who’ve been identified as most likely to die on the streets.
