Local Emergency Preparedness and Response Systems
The recent tornadoes in Oklahoma serve as an important reminder to all of us to be prepared for emergencies. In addition, if you are considering offering help to those in need due to the tornadoes, go to the American Red Cross website at http://www.redcross.org/ for more information about how to help with disaster relief.
Here at home, Pasadena's Public Safety officials urge everybody to prepare emergency supplies, including "Go Kits" for homes and cars and evacuation plans for their family and pets that will help you and your loved ones survive following a major disaster.
Emergency preparedness plans should include having enough food, water, medicine, flashlights, batteries, clothing and other supplies for each person and pet in your household to last at least three days to week, or longer if possible.
If you are not prepared, start by watching an informative, 12-minute disaster preparedness video posted at www.cityofpasadena.net/Disaster_Preparedness_Video/.
