From the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti’s press release on July 12, 2019
LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti today launched a new campaign to strengthen citywide emergency readiness, calling on Neighborhood Councils to appoint preparedness officers, bring resilience directly into their communities, and take part in the Ready Your L.A. Neighborhood (RYLAN) program.
“Los Angeles is a model of preparedness, yet we cannot wait for an earthquake, fire, or flood to jolt us into action — we have to empower neighborhoods to be ready before the next disaster strikes,” said Mayor Garcetti. “Resilience is everyone’s responsibility, and today’s announcement is a direct challenge to all Angelenos: to stay informed, remain alert, and ensure emergency preparation is woven into the fabric of our communities.”
