The following is a press release from the City of West Hollywood.
September is National Preparedness Month and a great time to make sure you have the needed tools to survive a crisis or major disaster. West Hollywood residents and businesses should prepare to be self-sufficient for at least three days after an emergency. After a major disaster, electricity, gas, water, and telephones may not be working. Transportation routes and businesses may be closed. Services in the City of West Hollywood may also be impacted as staff may be handling serious incidents during the initial hours of the disaster. It also may take some time for public safety personnel to reach those in need.
Get prepared for emergencies by taking a few simple steps - putting together a disaster kit, making an emergency plan, and staying informed.
