The Disaster Preparedness Program

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about awareness for the need of disaster preparedness. According to a new survey commissioned by the Ad Council, only a staggering 17% percent of Americans claim to be very prepared for an emergency situation.

All Peoples has launched a new community resource called The Disaster Preparedness Program. This program, funded by the California Community Foundation, strives to improve disaster preparedness and resiliency in Los Angeles County. All Peoples Disaster Relief Coordinator Ulises Alegria will coordinate with collaborative South Los Angeles partners to create a disaster relief plan for our South Los Angeles community. In addition, Ulises and his team will hold preparedness education workshops for community members, distribute 10,000 neighborhood evacuation maps, and create disaster supply kits.
