Neighborhood Council Community Emergency Plans
Hi All, the administrative organization that coordinates the Neighborhood Councils (NC’s) thru-out all of Los Angeles, EmpowerLA: http://empowerla.org
in conjunction with the City of LA will be in the process of directing each of the 99 Neighborhood Councils, which in sum covers all of LA, to prepare a Community Emergency Plan for their area. We had already been working on a similar project for our North Hills West Neighborhood Council, www.nhwnc.net so we have shifted gears to follow their direction.
That direction is being presented as a basic editable Community Emergency Plan template that will be supplied to all NC’s at the annual Neighborhood Council Congress, at one of the interesting workshop sessions on Saturday September 28, all day at downtown City Hall. The volunteer members of the Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Alliance and many others have contributed to this project over a long period of time.
After much input, discussion and research, the initial plan draft for our area is now ready for review. Note that there will be continuous updates indefinitely, as is the nature of preparedness. Our local Neighborhood Council, North Hills West, nhwnc.net, will plan on several presentations to high-lite the plan and go into detail about some of the topics and resource links, especially the new Los Angeles City free Map Your Neighborhood program. These will likely be 2 hour meetings at the Mid-Valley Library on Nordoff in the Community Room. We also are supporting SOS Emergency Products on Strathern to facilitate many of the plan topics in depth with subject matter experts. See current class / presentations at: https://www.sosproducts.com just click on Training Classes to see current offering. The upcoming Pet First Aid class is very popular and will fill fast. Everyone is welcome to join us to continue to work on our local Community Plan. The Neighborhood Council calendar and the nextdoor.com events listings will be the primary posting place for the future workshop / committee meetings.
