Agenda item # 10: Community Impact Statement (CIS)
The City’s Resiliency Plan tasks Neighborhood Councils with producing emergency preparedness plans for their communities. So far, the city has offered little or no help, financial or otherwise, for these projects. The Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Alliance believes that help with these projects could be forth- coming if the city’s Emergency Management Dept. were properly funded and staffed.
The Peer City Emergency Preparedness Programs Budget Comparison (FY2021-22) on page 7 of the Controller’s Report shows the funding disparity between Los Angeles and other comparable jurisdictions.”.
