LA County Supervisor Don Knabe asks residents to plan emergency needs

A message from Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe

This past weekend, we had yet another reminder of the need to have a plan and be prepared in the event of an emergency.  The 5.1 earthquake near La Habra fortunately did not result in major damages.  Like many of you, we had items fall from shelves at my house, but luckily no one was hurt.

The County has a detailed plan in place and our emergency responders train frequently.  But the reality is that if something major happened, they could not be everywhere.  That is why it is so important that families are prepared and neighbors look after each other.

Of course we all KNOW we should be prepared and we talk about having a plan and emergency needs set up, but too often busy lives get in the way and it just doesn’t happen.

I encourage you to set aside some time to prepare.  The County has tons of resources to help you, from signing up for notifications, to brief checklists or what to do if you have special needs.  Please take the time to learn more here: http://www.espfocus.org/

Have a great week.

 Supervisor Don Knabe
