About this event

We have all seen in the news over the last several weeks about the horrible events unfolding in Turkey and Syria in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake there.

For those of us who live in Los Angeles, we know we too are at risk for such a powerful earthquake. The threat of the “big one” has haunted our entire lives here and every time the earth begins to shake, we wonder if this is finally it and when the earth stops shaking, we go back to our normal lives and forget about the panic attack we just had.

  • Can what happened in Turkey and Syria happen here?
  • How will the Los Angeles Fire Department respond to a massive earthquake?
  • What will the rest of the City of Los Angeles government agencies to?
  • What we can we as community members do to prepare, and how can we respond within our own neighborhoods to help our families and immediate neighbors until the professions can arrive?

Our panel of experts will answer these questions for you and give you an opportunity to ask your own questions at the end.

As always, our trainings are open to everyone, regardless of if you are CERT-trained or not, regardless of if you live in Los Angeles or not.

Join us on Wednesday, March 15th, 7pm-9pm on Zoom.

You will need to register on this Eventbrite to receive the email invite for the Zoom Meeting and instructions on how to join.
