The Larchmont Buzz covered our fifth annual Block Captain party with a great article about our emergency preparedness speaker, Larry Bogatz.


From our Block Captain Gathering – a list of Emergency Preparedness Resources

Friday, September 19th, 2014

Paul Bogatz, Battalion 18 Coordinator for Community Emergency Response team spoke at our annual gathering of Block Captains. His primary point was that we should be storing significant supplies of clean drinking water not just for our families but for our neighbors as well. One of our most ambitious blocks has just achieved 100% participation purchasing safe storage for water.  Please let me know if you would be interested in organizing  your block or group – the more people we can collect the more reasonable the shipping prices will be.

Here are a list of resources Paul provided.

FEMA’s Emergency Financial First Aid Kit

FEMA’s Earthquake Safety Guide for Homeowners

County of Los Angeles Emergency Survival Guide

Earthquake Country Alliance

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Save N’ Ready – Commercial Emergency Supplies. This is but one of many local companies that can provide supplies.

Many thanks to all of the Block Captains and their lovely significant others who could join us for our annual Block Captain dinner. June and Paul Bilgore were so generous to lend us their beautiful garden for the festivities. We were honored with representatives from our Council Office, LAPD, our local security companies, FilmLA and our local press. There was a delicious dinner, party favors, a raffle and a great speaker about emergency preparedness, Paul Bogatz. We will be posting scans and links of the information we updated and distributed at the party.
