Event description
This is a FREE virtual event for West Los Angelenos to learn from local experts how to prepare for and survive a major disaster

About this Event


As Southern Californians we know all too well the vicious cycle of wildfires, followed by rain which causes mudslides and flooding in burn areas, which results in faster brush growth, which provides fuel for the next round of fires, and the cycle repeats. We saw the Covid pandemic enter the forefront of this picture and turn our lives upside down for the past year. Are you prepared for the possibility that a major earthquake could strike on top of everything else?

Learn how to "prepare, survive and thrive"

All presentations are virtual and each will be followed by live Q & A sessions.

Our keynote speakers are:

  • Dr. Anne Rimoin, PhD, Professor of Epidemiology at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health speaking about Covid, vaccines and variants
