California's Wildfire Awareness Week is May 5-11! 

With it being only been a few months since the Woolsey fire and 25 years since the Northridge earthquake we should use these as reminders that anything can happen in our area.  

Please take this time to assess how prepared your family and community are.  For further information, click on the above informational tabs or on any of the below icons.

While Santa Monica is often not directly impacted, many of our concerned community members want to know how they can help. City Hall and Fire Stations located in Santa Monica usually don't accept hard goods and recommend that you make monetary contributions instead to the following local non-profits:

Take action to prepare your family, organization, or community on what we can expect in our next catastrophic disaster, be it earthquake, or another event.  This is in line with the Santa Monica Office of Emergency Management's mantra of:
                 1) Get a kit, 2) Have a plan, and 3) Be informed. 

These basic steps should provide people with the means to cope in a disaster and become part of the response and recovery that our communities will surely need.  (click on the Preparedness tab)

Please take a moment this week to check your emergency supplies, update your contact information, sign up to receive community emergency alerts, and take the next 3-Saturday Santa Monica CERT class which starts on August 10.  For more information on this class, click on the CERT icon below or on the Programs tab above.
