Crenshaw Emergency Disaster Preparedness Expo

 

Gayle Anderson was live in Reseda at the Volunteer Emergency Command Center (VECC) Operations Valley Bureau, one of the many participants in the Saturday, October 7th, 2017 CRENSHAW COMMUNITY DISASTER PREPAREDNESS EXPO 2017 at West Angeles Cathedral in Los Angeles.

*Ready.gov is continuing their commitment to help us prepare ourselves in case of emergency, with an emphasis on preparedness for youth, older adults, and people with disabilities and others with access and functional needs. Ready.gov has Build an Emergency Kit information.

*The Department of Homeland Security’s Preparing for Disaster information.

*Download the FEMA app for disaster resources, weather alerts, and safety tips.

*Get information on building your own emergency kit and plan, as well as preparing your car, your family, your pets and more HERE.

*Get the Department of Homeland Security’s “Active Shooter Pocket Card.
