September is National Preparedness Month

Will you be ready when disaster strikes? (Really ready?)

Put your preparedness to the test and enter a chance to win a grand prize with the Ready RPV Challenge! The contest runs during the month of September and ends October 12 (the final day of Fire Prevention Week).

RPV residents who prepare or purchase an emergency kit, complete the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s “Ready! Set! Go!” Personal Wildfire Action Plan and post a photo or video showing each completed part of the challenge on social media with the hashtag #ReadyRPV will be entered into a drawing for a one-night stay in an Ocean View King Guest Room at Terranea Resort with either golf or spa day passes for two; plus breakfast for two at Catalina Kitchen. The winner will be announced at the end of the campaign.
