Preparing vulnerable Californians for natural disasters
Is your community listos (ready)?
Community members rely on local governments to provide them with
timely, accurate information about their local disaster
preparedness and response. As we’ve learned throughout history,
disasters disproportionately impact seniors, immigrants,
non-English speakers, communities of color, people with
disabilities, and the poor. Without significant efforts to engage
and educate these communities about disaster preparedness, they
are destined to suffer repeatedly, disparately, and unnecessarily
when disaster strikes.
