Disaster Prep


Are you prepared to survive for seven days if disaster strikes?

Earthquake-like damage should remind Californians they will have very similar needs following the “big one.”

Post-quake necessities like food, water and shelter will be pressing needs. 

The citywide emergency information radio service will broadcast Lakewood-specific information directly to residents following a crisis. Anyone who has a car or a battery-powered radio, made after 1990, will be able to monitor 1620 AM, even if all electrical power is out.

Lakewood’s free “Survive for 7” program is scheduled several times each year to help you prepare for a disaster and learn skills to survive in the first week until help arrives. Or, you can watch the video version from your home at any time.
