Mar Vista NC

Public Health and Safety Committee

Chair:  Christine Stemar

National Preparedness Month: This week is “Make a Plan to Prepare for Disasters."  By planning now, you will take the guess-work out of the hectic early minutes and hours when a disaster is happening, and feel more ready to stay safe when disasters occur.

  • Have a conversation with your loved ones about what to do when an emergency occurs.
  • Discuss how to evacuate from your home, and where you would meet.
  • Learn about the plans that are in place where you and your loved ones spend your time, such as
    • school
    • work
    • day care
    • religious facilities
  • Remember your pet(s), plan now for evacuation and their specific needs so that they can stay safe and comfortable during disasters.
    • Make a list of the specific supplies, e.g., extra food, water, carriers/leashes, vaccination records.
    • Determine some potential locations where your pets can safely stay, like a vet's office, friend's house, or pet-friendly hotel.
  • Widlfire areas should make a plan for quick evacuation.
    • Make a list of any supplies you may want to grab at the last minute.
    • Decide where you will meet after evacuation
  • Learn how the City will communicate with you during an emergency by visiting www.NotifyLA.org.
  • Use this guidebook with checklists and worksheets to help you get started.

People with disabilities and others with access and functional needs also need to adapt their plans based on their specific needs.  Work with your care providers to determine the best ways to stay safe if the power goes out or it is challenging to travel. Think about any supplies that may be needed, and practice the plan together. Begin by using this Resource Guide.
