[ARCHIVED] National Preparedness Month

Emergency supply kit

Every September, we celebrate our nation’s spirit of resilience by rededicating ourselves to the important task of being prepared in the face of any crisis. Emergencies come in many forms – from wildland fires to acts of terrorism to extreme weather conditions – and can strike anywhere in America. By discussing with our families, friends and neighbors how we will protect ourselves and our communities, we can contribute to, and share in, a stronger, more resilient society.

The theme of this year’s National Preparedness Month is “Don’t Wait. Communicate. Make Your Emergency Plan Today.” To learn more about how to prepare for emergencies, visit the City’s Emergency Management webpage (see link below), the Department of Homeland Security’s or the American Red Cross website.

For questions and/or concerns, please contact Tracy Bonano, the City’s Emergency Manager, at (310) 544-5209 or
