Are you ready for an emergency?

Natural disasters, like earthquakes and flooding, or man-made ones, like fire or explosions, happen without warning. Being prepared for emergencies can greatly lessen injury and loss of life or property. Beach Cities Health District is part of the South Bay’s emergency preparedness network.

As Ben Franklin counseled, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Getting you and your family informed on proper safety procedures and securing a few easy-to-acquire supplies can go a long way towards easing the impact of a disaster or emergency.
