We all need to heed the warnings that the Big One — a major earthquake — will strike, sooner or later. It is long overdue!
We can start by organizing our blocks so that our neighbors will be able to assist each other when the Big One happens.
On Saturday, Oct. 22, at 2 p.m., the West Hills Neighborhood Council's Public Safety & Emergency Preparedness Committee and the American Red Cross will present a training session for volunteers who wish to establish Map Your Neighborhood groups on their blocks at the Platt Branch Library: 23600 Victory Blvd. in West Hills/Woodland Hills.
Participation in this training will make your block eligible to receive a free rolling bag containing more than $200 worth of tools and other equipment, including two FRS walkie-talkie radios and more.
For more information, please contact Bob.Brostoff@westhillsnc.org. Hope you can make it!
