Disasters affect more than individuals; they can change what our neighborhood looks like, who lives here, where we go to shop, and how we live.  We may experience temporary disruptions of utilities, closed schools, no access to medical services, loose pets, no grocery stores or shops, and being cut off from normal assistance systems. In major disasters, more than 9 of every 10 victims are rescued by neighbors, not professional responders. Neighbors will need the assistance that you and others in your community can quickly provide.

There are free training resources and volunteer opportunities in Los Angeles County that can help you and your community get ready to help during a disaster.
