Be Prepared for a Disaster
Together, we can work to ensure that our community is well prepared to respond to any emergency.

Being ready for a disaster starts with basic preparedness activities like creating a family emergency plan, storing emergency food and water, putting together a disaster supplies kit, and registering in the Alert LA Mass Notification System to receive notifications such as evacuation orders and shelter information during a disaster. Residents are also encouraged to attend free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training offered by the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

“Preparing for an emergency is the responsibility of every resident, business, and organization in La Mirada,” says Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Andrew Vialpando. “Taking simple steps before a disaster such as having an emergency plan and having emergency supplies will save lives.”
