Partnering with Your Neighbors to be Ready

In major disasters, between 70% to 95% of victims are rescued by neighbors, not professional responders. Some of your neighbors will need assistance that can be easily provided by you and others that live in your community. The County of Los Angeles’ 5-Step Neighborhood Action Kit is a free resource that can help you and your neighbors get organized and ready to act.  

To learn more about how to help get your neighborhood disaster-ready, download the Neighborhood Action Kit and its supporting documents by clicking on the links on this page.

For more information, or to request for a speaker from Los Angeles County’s Office of Emergency Management to come speak to a neighborhood group, email oem@ceooem.lacounty.gov or call (323) 980-2260.
