City of LA EMD, FLASH and FEMA are partnering to present two free workshops!
April 7, 2017
Attention California Businesses, Organizations, and Earthquake Preparedness Partners:
The City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department, the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH), and FEMA are partnering to present two free workshops:
Tuesday, May 16, 9:00 am – 2:30 pm, Long Beach City College, Long Beach, CA
Thursday, May 18, 9:00 am – 2:30 pm, Cathedral of Our Lady of The Angels, Los Angeles, CA
The Workshops will provide an overview of the QuakeSmart Community Resilience Program for Businesses and Organizations. Participants will be able to review and implement business continuity planning and mitigation project plans through the simple, step-by-step planning tools in the QuakeSmart Program.
Why is this important? The Department of Labor states that 75% of organizations without a disaster plan will fail after a major disruption such as an earthquake. Organizations, large and small, are at risk – as are your employees, customers, and the community you serve.
The good news is that the actions to protect your organization, employees, and customers are simple, scalable, and many are affordable to implement. These actions will also help you to recover quicker should disaster strike.
To assist you, the Workshops will:
- Review easy actions you can take before, during, and after disasters;
- Provide experts to explain earthquake risks specific to your area;
- Explain the level of support you can expect from your local emergency management agency if a large-scale disaster occurs;
- Provide simple materials and helpful links to additional resources.
Regardless of your experience level in preparing for disasters, these FREE Workshop are for you – please join us!
