Emergency Preparedness Guides
These emergency preparedness program files were developed by long-time community leader and past PPCC Chair Flo Elfant as a public service for the Pacific Palisades community. Three major emergency preparedness guides are presented here.
The first guide, Family & Business Information Plus Personal Survival Guide, provides information for a family unit. This guide helps your family prepare for and, if necessary, deal with a major disaster such as an earthquake, wildfire, flu pandemic or terrorist attack. It contains a variety of resources relevant to dealing with such disasters. Family & Business Guide
The second guide is the Neighborhood Emergency Planning Guide — useful for organizing members of your local neighborhood in the event of a disaster. Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness Guide
The third guide is the Business Emergency Planning Guide to assist business owners in creating a disaster preparedness plan specific to the needs of their business. Business Emergency Preparedness Guide
