Los Angeles' 5 Steps to Preparedness Plan:

Los Angeles is home to over 4 million residents. There are just under 10,000 police officers and nearly 4,000 firefighters. In the event of a large, catastrophic disaster, it could take up to 72 hours to a week before first responders can provide assistance. When you do the math, chances are you will be your first responder. That's why it's important to have a neighborhood preparedness/disaster plan for your block. The Los Angeles Emergency Management Department's 5 Steps to Preparedness Plan is a great and easy way to ensure that your friends, family, and neighbors are safe and able to survive in a major disaster.

Your West Hills Neighborhood Council has been working with neighbors and with block groups throughout our community, by building block plans so that we can ensure our community is safe for the next major disaster. Once the plan is complete, we provide block groups with a disaster kit that can aide neighbors to respond to incidents on their block during an emergency.
