During a regional disaster, such as a moderate to major earthquake, the city services we rely on and expect will be unavailable. The Fire Department will immediately be overwhelmed. 9-1-1 will ring busy, and hospitals will be filled beyond capacity. Chances are your cell phone won’t work, your power will be out, and your land line will be down.
The Neighborhood Team Program (NTP) combines the best parts of the LA City Fire Department’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training Program, the LA City Emergency Management Department’s Ready Your LA Neighborhood (RYLAN), and Neighborhood Watch.
The goal of the Neighborhood Team Program is to help you and your neighbors build your Neighborhood Emergency Response Team with a turn-key package of short, easy to follow, but comprehensive step-by-step guides that guide you through the process of creating the team, recruiting your neighbors, setting up initial Map Your Neighborhood training, and the plans to follow right after a disaster.
Additionally, we’ll put you in touch with your CERT Coordinators to guide you through the process, and set up trainings and drills.
Join us on Tuesday, November 17th, 7pm-9pm Pacific Time.
This training will be hosted on Microsoft Teams.
You will need to register on this Eventbrite to receive the invite to the Teams Meeting and instructions on how to join. Signups end 15 minutes before the training. We will be available an hour before the training to help test and make sure you get in.
If this is the first time you are using Microsoft Teams, please don’t wait until the last minute to test.
