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.

Live Prepared – Commercial Emergency Supplies. This is but one of many local companies that can provide supplies.

If you are on the sidewalk while talking/texting on your cellphone, please be careful! We have had a few cellphone snatches this last week. Suspects target people who are very distracted with their devices.

Thieves are still targeting catalytic converters however, this last week has seen fewer thefts and with a wider variety of vehicles (not just mainly Honda Elements).

Scammers are still actively posing as debt collectors, usually claiming to be from a utility company.

Just a reminder, when your vehicle is parked: LOCK IT, HIDE IT, KEEP IT. Wilshire is constantly experiencing burglaries and thefts from vehicles. We have seen thieves targeting vehicles for break-ins for things as inexpensive as spare change and phone chargers!
