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 being prepared, please visit the various tabs on this OEM website.
