Neighborhood Preparedness Ambassador Program workshops

Emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility, and it could save your life or the life of a friend of family member.

The City of Los Angeles is hosting a Neighborhood Preparedness Ambassador Program to train residents to make sure our neighborhoods is as prepared as possible for any natural disaster. The training is also designed so that participants will be able to teach these procedures to their Neighborhood Councils or other organizations.

The workshops will be held on two consecutive Saturdays -- April 18 and April 25 -- from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Olympic Community Police Station located at 1130 Vermont Avenue. Participants are asked to attend both sessions.

Classes are free, but space is limited. For additional information or to RSVP, contact Mona Curry at the Emergency Management Department at 213-473-9921 or by emailing mona.curry@lacity.org.
